Man sent to prison for biting off chunk of wife's nose

HARTFORD, Conn. A Connecticut man who bit off a chunk of his wife's nose, permanently disfiguring her, will spend more than six years in prison following his Tuesday sentencing. reported. That means while he does not agree with all the state's allegations, he acknowledges there is enough evidence to convict him. Clay bit the victim in their Bloomfield home in August 2015, prosecutors said. The couple has since divorced. She now wants nothing to do with Clay, who stalked, harassed and threatened her during their marriage, she said in court. Every day she looks in the mirror she's reminded of the attack and hopes to have surgery to further repair the damage, she said. Clay told the judge he still loves the victim, still considers her his wife despite the divorce and compared his prosecution to the persecution of Christ. He apologized only after his attorney prompted him to do so. That led prosecutor Christopher Pelosi to say Clay's apparent lack of remorse makes him fear for the victim. The state has concerns for her life," he said. Clay was sentenced to 15 years in prison, with 6½ years to serve, and three years of probation. He also was also barred from contacting his ex-wife.

Khap panchayats ruling against inter-caste marriage ‘absolutely illegal’: SC

The Supreme Court has held as “absolutely illegal” any attack by khap panchayats or associations against adult man and woman opting for an inter-caste marriage.

If an adult man and woman marry, no khap, panchayat or society can question them,” SC bench headed by CJI Dipak Misra said on Tuesday.

Further, the apex court added that if the Centre does not step in to ban such panchayats then it would have to step in.

Khaps, community organisations representing a clan or a group of related clans, frequently make pronouncements on social issues and have often landed in controversies owing to their diktats.

One such Khap panchayat leader in Haryana blamed chowmein for the rise in rape cases in India.

To my understanding, consumption of fast food contributes to such incidents. Chowmein leads to hormonal imbalance evoking an urge to indulge in such acts,” Jitender Chhatar, a resident of Jind’s Chhatar village and khap panchayat leader, was quoted as saying.

Another suggested that the age of marriage should be dropped from 18 to 16 because being married would make young women less susceptible to rape.
