80-year-old woman raped in Tamil Nadu

Salem, May 11 (PTI): In a shocking incident, an 80-year old woman was allegedly raped by a 41-year-old man following which she was admitted to a hospital in a serious condition.

The woman, a widow, is battling for life at a government hospital here, police said today.

The accused Palanivel, a vegetable vendor, of Malliyakari in the district was detained by the local people and handed over to police who arrested him and slapped a rape case.

According to police, the woman was living alone at Gopalapuram in Malliakari. Around midnight last night, Palanivel, who has two wives and four children, went to the victim's house and asked for water, but she refused.

    End time is nearing I suppose.
    Education alone can not improve moral standard.
    In olden days, people used to wear very little, still people had not lust. These type of people are Satanic, even animals do not rape.
    I strongly believe, moral education and strong scriptural education can curb such violence.

    The difference is, human beings have intellect.

    We can control our senses through spiritual practises.
