A woman in Kollam, Kerala is being questioned after the charred body of her son was found close to their home.

On Wednesday night, the Chathannur Police came upon the partially-charred remains of 14-year-old Jithu Job in an area close to his home. The discovery was made after Jithu's father Job, who runs a medical supplies' store, filed a police complaint on Monday alleging that his son has gone missing. According to the complaint, the boy had gone out to buy a scale for school and never returned home.

When the police, upon a detailed search at the house, discovered the boy's sandals at the back, they inquired about it. When Jithu's mother Jayamol was questioned, her statement to the police was reportedly contradictory from what she told her husband.

We noticed there were abrasions and burn marks on her hand. When we asked her about it, she said it was incurred while she was cooking," said Chathannur sub-inspector Nizar A.

The police later expanded the search with the help of dogs and came upon the charred remains of Jithu in a compound, a bit far from his home. According to the police, the Class 9 student was strangled to death using a shawl and his body later doused in kerosene and set on fire.

In contrast, some weeks back, an engineering student reportedly confessed to police of killing and burning his mother's body in Thiruvananthapuram.

Sisters steal baby boy to stop father from remarrying

Police arrested two sisters from Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura district on Monday for allegedly stealing a newborn from a government hospital in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur, but they left the baby on a roadside with a note and a feeding bottle three days later.

The suspects, identified as Shivani Devi and Priyanka Devi, aged 23 and 20, said before officers they wanted to gift a baby boy to their mother who was suffering from depression as their father was planning to remarry after their 12-year-old brother died two years ago.

The women stole the baby on January 10, but were overcome by fear after reading in newspapers about police trying to catch the culprits. They abandoned the boy on January 13 near Rarah village with a handwritten appeal that whoever found him should inform police that this is the baby stolen on January 10.

Bharatpur superintendent of police Anil Kumar Tank said investigators identified the siblings through CCTV camera footage from the hospital. The two women were seen in the video riding a scooter, while a man at the bicycle and motorbike parking lot of the hospital remembered the vehicle’s registration number.

We arrested the sisters from their native village, Swarupa Naugaon, in Mathura under Section 363 (kidnapping) of the IPC and charged them with stealing a baby,” the district police chief said.

The women allegedly did a recce in Bharatpur and targeted the son of 30-year-old Manish, whose wife had delivered the baby around 4am on January 10 at a community health centre in nearby Pahari town and was shifted to the government women’s hospital under Mathura Gate police station for better care. They took away the boy around 2. 30pm when the mother was sleeping. But the hospital surveillance video revealed the culprits and Manish’s father-in-law, Saddique Mev, registered a complaint.

Police superintendent Tank said the two women told police that they initially tried to adopt a boy to stop father Laxman Singh from taking another wife for a son, underscoring a largely patriarchal society’s obsession with a male heir.

Also, they approached nurses in hospitals to know if they could buy a baby from a poor family. But the sisters gave up because of the long legal process for adoption, and strict laws and punishment against any distress sale of babies.

Shivani is a teacher at a private school, married and lives with her husband at Pali Kheda in Mathura. Priyanka is married too, lives in Agra and studying for her graduation in arts.

BB 11: 'Arshi Khan is a hot girl'

Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

In the ongoing Bigg Boss 11, rapper Akash Dadlani got noticed for more reasons than one. He was seen rapping, running around the house cracking jokes and picking fights with almost everyone inside the house? And the inmates often called him ‘mad’ and wanted him to leave the house. st four days before the finale [January 14], Akash was shown the door on Wednesday in a surprise midweek eviction.

Like everyone wondered, ask him why did he do all the weird things inside the house, and Akash says, “I was doing everything for the show, trust me. In real life, I am totally different from what I was inside the [Bigg Boss] house. I am from America and I scored 90 per cent in Psychology [in college], so obviously, I knew how to generate reaction and stay in spotlight. Also, I wanted to make sure that I could give content to Bigg Boss. It’s the best show ever and I wanted to make sure that it keeps on getting good TRPs.

But what about the other housemates calling him mad? Well, along with doing what is right, I admit that I also made mistakes. And that might be the reason behind it [calling me mad]. But they all loved me, too. Being an emotional guy, I did not want to hurt anyone and enjoyed being with everyone.

Talking about his finale week fights with co-contestant Shilpa Shinde, Akash adds, “The first 10 weeks were good. We [Shilpa and I] shared a mother-son relationship, and used to hug, kiss and joke all the time. But, somewhere down the line, she became uncomfortable, however, things are fine now. I am really close to her and Puneesh [Sharma].

What also got many talking is his relationship with Arshi Khan, another evicted contestant, as the two were often seen holding hands and sharing the same bed inside the house. She is a hot girl and rappers always get hot girls. laughs). I enjoyed being with her and we supported each other throughout. But there is nothing more than friendship. We were the dynamic duo in Bigg Boss,” clarifies Akash, adding that he wants one among Puneesh or Vikas [Gupta; channel head, producer and contestant] or Hina [Khan; actor and contestant] to win the show.

Puneesh is my buddy and he deserves it. Vikas and Hina played their games well. But Vikas was very good at manipulating and make sure people around him do what he wanted,” quips Akash.

Thankful to Bigg Boss for making him popular, Akash now plans to now concentrate on his single with singer Pawni Pandey. I am excited about the song; it has come out really well. Pawni [who sung Laila Main Laila in Raees] is a gem to work with. I have just rapped in the song and we will soon shoot a video. Hopefully, we will release it soon,” he shares.

And what about working with his relative, composer-singer Vishal Dadlani? Not to forget that the latter first denied knowing him and then said he is a distant relative. And Akash’s mother clarified it saying that Vishal is family and she even has photos of him attending her marriage. My mother has already told everything clearly. I just want to add that I want to become a big man on my own and show it to the world. I will become the best rapper in India and also work in Hollywood and make my country proud like Priyanka Chopra. Rapping for Salman Khan [actor; host of Bigg Boss 11] is a dream that both my mother and I cherish. Hope that will happen if Salman wants it,” he concludes.
