Living Together Could Land Indian Couples in Jail
India's ruling nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has recently passed a significant legislation as part of the state's Uniform Civil Code (UCC), targeting what it terms "live-in" relationships. Approved by local representatives on Tuesday, this law, firmly rooted in the Indian Constitution, aims to put an end to religious interpretations governing various aspects of personal law, such as marriage, divorce, inheritance, and adoption.
Under this new law, failure to declare a live-in relationship could result in a potential fine, equivalent to about £240, and could even lead to jail time. Since gaining independence in 1947, India has allowed Hindus, Muslims, Christians, and other minority groups to adhere to their respective personal laws and customs, with the option of following a secular code for matters such as marriage, divorce, adoption, and inheritance.

Case Dropped Over At-Home Illegal Abortion
Prosecutors have decided to withdraw charges against a woman who was accused of conducting an illicit abortion at home during a lockdown, concluding a three-year investigation. Bethany Cox, 22, had vehemently denied allegations of intentionally taking a drug on July 6, 2020, with the purpose of ending the life of a viable unborn child, knowing it would result in pregnancy termination. Additionally, she faced charges of administering a poison with the intent to induce a miscarriage as the initial coronavirus lockdown concluded.
Scheduled to stand trial the following week, Cox saw the case take an unexpected turn as prosecutor Jolyon Perks formally presented no evidence in court due to "evidential difficulties" in challenging her defense statement. Perks explained to Teesside Crown Court, "The Crown reached the conclusion that crucial evidence to counter the defense's case was lacking, rendering a conviction no longer realistically possible."
