In over 70 per cent of the domestic violence cases registered in Maharashtra between 2008 and 2011,the victims are yet to be heard,the Comptroller and Auditor General of India has said.

The CAG report,tabled in the state legislature on Thursday,also pulled up the women and child development department for not putting in place a mechanism to assess the number of children in need of care and protection.

NCP MLA gives privilege notice against K’taka DGP

NCP member Shashikant Shinde gave a breach of privilege notice in the Legislative Assembly against Karnataka DGP Thursday for filing a FIR against Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil.

He the FIR was a “motivated act on part of the Karnataka government”.

“R R Patil was not speaking on a public platform but at a private function. Speaking for the rights of Marathi-speaking people in Belgaum does not amount to promoting enmity between different groups and provoking and creating disharmony between communities on the basis of religion,race,place of birth and language under the Representation of People Act,” Shinde said.

He said the Karnataka government must be hurt that Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti had a landslide win in Belgaum Municipal Corporation elections and fears the Marathi people in Belgaum will again express their will through the ballot in the Assembly elections next month.

The FIR against Patil was filed on April 10.
