New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday expressed anguish over the horrific incidents of minors’ rape here and questioned what steps Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Delhi’s Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung were taking to curb it.

Kejriwal, who is on his way to meet the families of the two victims, tweeted: “Repeated rape of minors is shameful and worrying. Delhi police has completely failed to provide safety. What are PM and his LG doing?”


“I am on my way to hospitals to meet rape victims,” he added.
It was reported on Saturday that two girls – one aged two-and-half years and the other five – were gang-raped in the national capital.

In the first case, the two-and-half-year-old girl was allegedly abducted from near a ‘Ramlila’ event outside her home in west Delhi’s Nangloi area on Friday by two men on a motorcycle. She was allegedly gang-raped and dumped in the area with severe injuries.

In the second case, the five-year-old girl was allegedly raped by two men known to her family in Anand Vihar area of east Delhi. The men, reportedly inebriated at the time, dumped her near her home after the assault.

A week earlier, a four-year-old girl was raped and tortured in Delhi.

But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.

India celebrated a historic day on August 7, as 23-year-old Neeraj Chopra became the first Indian to win an Olympic gold medal in athletics. In the men's javelin throw event, he achieved his greatest triumph, throwing the javelin 87.58 meters on his second try.

Neeraj Chopra was born on December 24, 1997, in Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat district. He grew up in a Haryanavi family of farmers. He is the brother of two sisters. He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym. He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him. When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.

Gothic dresses displayed in a store

The emergence of the Industrial Revolution in Victorian England brought with it many apprehensions and fears that translated into a new genre in literature: the gothic. Today, the idea of the gothic does not have to much with literature as much as it is associated with fashion.

The Victorians began to wear black more often during the Industrial Revolution to hide the stains of soot on their clothes. Many of the working class were employed in factories.
