Jodhpur, March 27, 2017:  A 28-year-old woman has been burnt alive in Rajasthan’s Jodhpur district because she opposed felling of trees on her farm, the police said.

Lalita had an altercation with villagers on Saturday as she protested cutting of trees for widening a road along her farm near Pipad town, a police official told IANS.

In an FIR report, her family said the quarrel became so ugly that some villagers poured petrol on her and set her afire.

According to the police, Lalita died from her injuries while being treated at a government hospital here.

“Prima facie it does not appear a case of being burnt by villagers and it seems the quarrel was not on felling of trees but pathway,” a police official said.

An investigation has been launched into the incident. “If need be, we will arrest the culprits soon,” the official said. (IANS)

US, December 14, 2017: A white nationalist accused of killing a 32-year-old woman when he plowed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August was charged with first-degree murder Thursday, local media reported.

James Fields Jr., 20, appeared at Charlottesville District Court for a preliminary hearing, during which a previous charge of second-degree murder was changed to first-degree murder, local TV station WSET and others reported from the court.

Fields would face up to life in prison if convicted of first-degree murder, while second-degree murder carries a penalty of five to 40 years in prison, according to the Virginia penal code.

Court officials and the local district attorney were not immediately available for comment.

Ohio-native Fields is suspected of killing Heather Heyer and injuring 19 people.

The incident took place amid clashes between hundreds of white supremacists and counterprotesters. After hours of clashes, a sedan driving at high speed plowed into the crowd before reversing along the same street.

Charlottesville is home to the University of Virginia’s flagship campus.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe blamed neo-Nazis for sparking the unrest in the city, where rival groups fought pitched battles using rocks and pepper spray after far-right protesters converged to demonstrate against a plan to remove a statue of a Confederate war hero.

After the rally, Republican President Donald Trump said there were “very fine people” on both sides, drawing condemnation from some Republican leaders and praise from white supremacists. (VOA)
