  1. 25-year-old mother of two was gang-raped in moving train by Bahauddin Zakariya Express staffers while travelling to Karachi from Multan May 27
  2. Donald Trump's DNA sample is sought for a defamation suit filed by a woman who accused him of rape
  3. Akshay Kumar is known for his wit and humour but he has been brutally trolled on social media for his old controversial statements. Nowadays, Bollywood celebs have a filter on their candid interviews and they hardly let loose but back in the day when people on social media weren’t very active, these actors did take some liberty in sharing their views. View this post on Instagram Akshay had given a controversial statement in 2014 during the promotions of his film The Shaukeens wherein he said that every man is lustful. The Shaukeens was a comedy film that hit the theatres in the year 2014. It was directed by Abhishek Sharma and featured multiple veteran actors including Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, and Piyush Mishra, amongst others. The film sees these elderly men, or ‘shaukeens’ heading to Mauritius on a vacation after getting bored of their mundane lifestyle, falling in love with the same girl and wooing her in their own element. Here’s the trailer: While speaking to Rediff, Akshay had said that it is in a man's DNA to stare at women and let his imagination run wild. “There is no man who isn't lustful. When a man looks at a woman, his imagination is bound to run wild. A male's DNA is composed such that he will stare at a woman. The catch is in how he behaves with the woman. Anyone who disagrees with this and says it depends on perspective is again trying to hide their lust because it is socially unacceptable to think free," (sic) said the Khiladi actor in the old interview. If he had said this statement in 2021, he would have been trolled brutally to generalize men as stalkers. View this post on Instagram On the work front, Akshay’s last release Sooryavashi worked really well on the box office. He will next be seen in Atrangi Re alongside Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush. The film was announced last year but the shooting was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The shooting of the film was eventually completed on March 27, 2021. The movie will release on Disney+ Hotstar on 24 December 2021. View the full article
  4. A bust of Cheddar Man, complete with shoulder-length dark hair and short facial hair, created using 3D printing LONDON: The first modern Briton had dark skin and blue eyes, London scientists said on Wednesday, following groundbreaking DNA analysis of the remains of a man who lived 10,000 years ago. Known as "Cheddar Man" after the area in southwest England where his skeleton was discovered in a cave in 1903, the ancient man has been brought to life through the first ever full DNA analysis of his remains. In a joint project between Britain´s Natural History Museum and University College London, scientists drilled a 2mm hole into the skull and extracted bone powder for analysis. Their findings transformed the way they had previously seen Cheddar Man, who had been portrayed as having brown eyes and light skin in an earlier model. "It is very surprising that a Brit 10,000 years ago could have that combination of very blue eyes but really dark skin," said the museum´s Chris Stringer, who for the past decade has analysed the bones of people found in the cave. The findings suggest that lighter pigmentation being a feature of populations of northern Europe is more recent than previously thought. Cheddar Man´s tribe migrated to Britain at the end of the last Ice Age and his DNA has been linked to individuals discovered in modern-day Spain, Hungary and Luxembourg. Selina Brace, a researcher of ancient DNA at the museum, said the cave environment Cheddar Man was found in helped preserve his remains. "In the cave you have a really nice, cool, dry, constant environment, and that basically prevents the DNA from breaking down," she said. A bust of Cheddar Man, complete with shoulder-length dark hair and short facial hair, was created using 3D printing. It took close to three months to build the model, with its makers using a high-tech scanner which had been designed for the International Space Station. Alfons Kennis, who made the bust with his brother Adrie, said the DNA findings were "revolutionary". "It´s a story all about migrations throughout history," he told Channel 4 in a documentary to be aired on February 18. "It maybe gets rid of the idea that you have to look a certain way to be from somewhere. We are all immigrants," he added.
  5. LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said on Wednesday that the only way the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police were able to arrest the suspect involved in the brutal murder of four-year-old Asma was through the DNA results provided by the Punjab Forensic Science Agency. KP Police claimed the arrests of two suspects for their alleged connection in the Asma murder case on Wednesday. The prime suspect, 15-year-old Muhammad Nabi, worked in a local restaurant and was also a relative of the deceased. The case was resolved by tracing a drop of blood on a leaf in the sugarcane field where the minor was killed, the police claimed. KP Police claim arrest of prime suspect in Asma murder case KP Police says that the case was resolved by tracing a drop of blood on a leaf in the sugarcane field where the minor was killed Sanaullah said that the suspect lived in the same locality where police are stationed for the last three weeks but they failed to trace him on their own, adding that it was only through the DNA report from Lahore that the law enforcement authorities were able to trace him. Taking a jibe at the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, the law minister said at least today Imran should publically appreciate the role of the Punjab Forensic Science Agency. He added that the KP Police attempted to misdirect the case earlier by claiming that the minor had died of natural causes.
  6. The crime scene/File photo MARDAN: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) police on Thursday confirmed it has received the forensic report from the Punjab Forensics Laboratory in the rape and murder case of four-year-old Aasma. In the latest development in the ongoing investigation against the brutal incident, Mardan Regional Police Officer DIG Awal Khan said the police has received the DNA test report on the case and has sent samples of 243 suspects to the laboratory for cross matching. Aasma was reported missing from the Gujjar Garhi area in Mardan on January 13, and was recovered dead the next day from the nearby sugarcane fields. The murderer remains at large. In a suo motu hearing of the case on Tuesday, Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar admonished the KP police for its failure to arrest the culprit and said it was reflective of the force's incompetence. The chief justice also inquired what the KP police had done so far in the case, to which the DIG failed to give a satisfying reply. SC admonishes KP police for 'incompetence' in Aasma rape-murder case The Supreme Court was hearing its suo motu case in the rape and murder of four-year-old girl, who was found in sugarcane fields two weeks back The court then adjourned the hearing until February 6. Dr Ashraf Tahir ? the Director-General of the Punjab Forensic Science Agency ? earlier said the DNA tests conducted on the samples obtained from the deceased?s body and the crime scene proved that the minor girl was sexually assaulted before her death. One person?s DNA was found on Aasma?s body confirming the rape, the official added, noting that the next stage in the investigation would be to match the DNA samples taken from over 200 people in the case to track down the suspect.
  7. THE HAGUE: State-of-the-art laboratories were unveiled Tuesday in the Netherlands to help millions of families track down loved ones missing in conflicts and disasters around the world through new, sophisticated DNA tests. It is the latest step for the non-governmental organisation the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP), born out of the conflicts in former Yugoslavia and set up in 1996 in Sarajevo by then US president Bill Clinton. Having moved to The Hague last year, the organisation is completing the transition and relocating its labs from the Bosnian capital to the Dutch city where they will be equipped with cutting-edge technology. "It´s called massively parallel sequencing or next-generation sequencing," the head of the DNA lab, Rene Huel, told AFP. "Basically what that is enabling us to do is increasing the amount of genetic data we can get from a sample." Decades old bones The new technology, donated by the Dutch holding company Qiagen, enables scientists to better extract DNA from "even challenging bone samples. Ones that are decades old," Huel explained. It also provides a huge number of genetic markers, meaning that even if family samples are from more distant relatives, such as a grandchild or even a third cousin, it is "possible that you will be able to conclusively ID somebody." The extracted DNA is cross-referenced against ICMP´s existing data base of about 100,000 samples from relatives to see if there is a match. The organisation has already succeeded in identifying some 70 percent of the 40,000 people who went missing in the Balkans conflicts of the 1990s, including 90 percent of the 8,000 killed in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre. But over the past years it has been increasingly lending its expertise to other tragedies, such as the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami or the devastating Hurricane Haiyan which hit the Philippines in November 2013. Being able to "garner attention for this global challenge of missing persons ... and ensure that all governments recognise that there are thousands, if not millions of persons, missing around the world from conflicts, from human rights abuses, from natural disasters, from human trafficking ... is a huge step forward for us," the organisation´s director general Kathryne Bomberger said. Closure and justice For retired Swedish mathematics teacher, Ingrid Gudmundsson, who lost her former husband, her daughter Linda and her grand-daughter Mira in Thailand in the 2004 tsunami, the work of the ICMP meant "everything." The three had been on holiday in Khao Lak when the giant wave struck. It took months for their bodies to be found and identified. Mira was the last -- finally found thanks to DNA taken from her favourite toy at Gudmundsson´s home which her grieving grandmother had sent to the ICMP in Thailand. "When Mira was identified I can really say that it was a stone falling from my shoulder. Even if I have it inside me in the heart, it was easier to handle," she told AFP. It meant Gudmundsson could bring all three back to Sweden and lay them to rest together in the churchyard near her home. While closure is important for families, the organisation also aims to protect the rights of survivors, and aid peace, justice and reconciliation. "It´s hard to tell a mother that the conflict is done, everything is done and we can start to build a new society while her son or two sons or three sons are missing," said Syrian human rights activist Muhanad Abulhusn, who fled Syria after being detained twice by Syrian authorities. "Finding the fate of those people, is a must, and it is an essential part of the justice we are seeking."
  8. An adult female Dryococelus australis ? also known as the Lord Howe Island stick insect that was once declared extinct ? is shown in this undated photo released on October 5, 2017. Courtesy Rohan Cleave/Melbourne Zoo/Handout via REUTERS WASHINGTON: When black rats invaded Lord Howe Island after the 1918 wreck of the steamship Makambo, they wiped out numerous native species on the small Australian isle in the Tasman Sea including a big, flightless insect that resembled a stick. But the Lord Howe Island stick insect, once declared extinct, still lives. Scientists said on Thursday DNA analysis of museum specimens of the bug and a similar-looking one from an inhospitable volcanic outcrop called Ball?s Pyramid 23 kilometres (14 miles) away confirmed they are the same species. The finding could help pave the way for its reintroduction in the coming years. ?The Lord Howe Island stick insect has become emblematic of the fragility of island ecosystems. Unlike most stories involving extinction, this one gives us a unique second chance,? Alexander Mikheyev ? an evolutionary biologist at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University in Japan ? said. The glossy-black insect that grows up to six inches (15 cm) in length is nicknamed the ?land lobster.? Other stick insects are found around the world, so named because their appearance lets them blend in with trees and bushes to evade predators. As adults, the wingless Lord Howe Island stick insects shelter in trees during daytime and come out at night to eat shrubbery. The bright-green babies are active during daytime. By about 1930, they had vanished on Lord Howe Island, which was thought to be their only home. There were no land-dwelling mammals there after the arrival of rats, who also vanquished five bird species and 12 other insect species. A rock-climbing ranger made a curious discovery in 2001 on Ball?s Pyramid: a similar-looking insect. Since then, captive breeding programs have begun at the Melbourne Zoo and elsewhere. Because of certain differences between the Ball?s Pyramid insects and the Lord Howe Island insect museum specimens, there was some question about whether they were the same species. ?We found what everyone hoped to find, that despite some significant morphological differences, these are indeed the same species,? said Mikheyev, who led the research published in the journal Current Biology. Officials are planning a program to eradicate the invasive rats on Lord Howe Island, which could allow the stick insects to return. ?I imagine that maybe a decade from now, people will travel to Lord Howe Island and take night walks, hoping to glimpse this insect,? Mikheyev said. ?In maybe 20 years, they could become a ubiquitous sight.?
  9. This photo ? taken on June 27, 2017 ? shows Spanish national Pilar Abel Martinez, who claimed to Salvador Dali's daughter, speaking during an interview in Barcelona. AFP/Lluis Gene/Files MADRID: A DNA test on the exhumed remains of Salvador Dali show he is not the father of a Spanish psychic claiming to be his illegitimate daughter, the Dali Foundation said Wednesday. A court had ordered Dali's exhumation to settle the paternity suit lodged by Pilar Abel, who would have been entitled to a share of his vast fortune if she was found to be the daughter of the Spanish surrealist artist. Dali's DNA samples "prove that Pilar Abel is not the biological daughter of Salvador Dali", the foundation said in a statement, adding this "puts an end to an absurd and artificial controversy" "This conclusion comes as no surprise to the Foundation since at no time has there been any evidence of the veracity of an alleged paternity," it added. The arduous task of the exhumation in July involved removing a slab weighing more than a tonne that covered his tomb at the Dali Theatre-Museum in Figueras in northeastern Spain where the eccentric artist was born. Forensics experts then removed DNA samples from Dali's skin, nail, and two long bones. Spain's Culture Minister, Inigo Mendez de Vigo, said at the time that the procedure "breaks my heart". Big bill The Dali Foundation's lawyer, Alber Segura, had warned that Abel could be landed with a big bill if her claims are proven false. "If Pilar Abel is not Dali's daughter then we must ask this woman to reimburse the costs of the exhumation," he said at the time of the exhumation. Abel, a 61-year-old who long worked as a psychic in Catalonia, claims her mother had a relationship with the artist when she worked in Cadaques, a picturesque Spanish port where the painter lived for years. If Abel had been confirmed as Dali's only child, she would have been entitled to 25 percent of the huge fortune and heritage of one of the most celebrated and prolific painters of the 20th century, according to her lawyer Enrique Blanquez. Dali's estate, which includes properties and hundreds of paintings, is entirely in the hands of the Spanish state. The Foundation says it was worth nearly 400 million euros ($460 million) at the end of 2016. In an interview with AFP just days after a court ordered the exhumation, Abel said her grandmother had told her she was Dali's daughter when she was seven or eight years old. Her mother admitted it much later. Abel is from the city of Figueras, like Dali, and she said she would often see him in the streets. "We wouldn't say anything, we would just look at each other. But a glance is worth a thousand words," she said. 'Totally inadequate' The Dali Foundation said the court decision to order the exhumation was "unusual and unjustified". The painter's remains will be returned to his tomb in the Dali Theatre-Museum. Miguel Domenech, Dali's former lawyer and friend, told AFP that the DNA results were "a relief". "Dali's memory is now free of the suspicion that he had a daughter with the mother of this lady," he added. Born on May 11, 1904, Dali was one of the most famous artists from the 20th century surrealist period, painting pictures like the melting clocks in the 1931 work "The Persistence Of Memory". He married his wife, Gala, in 1934, and the couple remained together up until her death in 1982. They had no children and after his death in 1989, aged 84, he left his estate to the Spanish state.
  10. LAHORE: The DNA report in the stabbing case of Khadija Siddiqui was submitted in court on Thursday. The report states that the blood found on the helmet of Shah Hussain (the man accused of stabbing Khadija) belongs to the victim. Hair samples also found in the helmet belong to the accused. ?Our arguments have been completed. We request the court to include the DNA report on grounds of ensuring a fair trial,? said Khadija's counsel Barrister Hassan Niazi, further adding, ?the opposing lawyers have shamelessly stooped low. They have indulged in character assassination of Khadija and now they are changing their statements as first they said that their client was not involved ? now they are saying that no such incident happened.? Niazi said that if her client did not get justice from this court, the counsel would appeal in higher courts, however, he added that the counsel is disheartened to see that the Chief Justice of Pakistan didn?t take notice of the case. He said that her client has around 60 stitches on her neck due to the murder attempt by Hussain. Survivor of brutal stabbing terrorised by thought of facing attacker in school exam Khadija Siddiqui, a law graduate, was stabbed by her classmate, Shah Hussain, on Lahore's Davis Road, on May 3, 2016 On May 3, 2016, Khadija was allegedly stabbed 23 times by Shah Hussain in Lahore. Over a year since the horrific incident, Khadija still awaits justice and appeals to society to raise its voice for her. Khadija' attacker, Shah Hussain stabbed her repeatedly on Lahore's Davis Road. He managed to flee from the scene of the crime but was captured on a mobile camera by an eyewitness. A few days later, Khadija identified her attacker and got him booked on charges of attempted murder. Ironically, Khadija's younger sister, whom she had gone to pick from school, was also there when she came under the brutal attack and witnessed the entire episode. She was somehow saved by her driver, who tried to take control of the attacker, forcing him to flee from the scene. The attack was witnessed by hundreds of people in front of a hotel on Davis Road. After the registration of a case, the accused, Shah Hussain, requested a sessions court for bail before arrest, which was turned down. Hussain, whose father happens to be a renowned lawyer, was aided by a number of other lawyers to flee from court premises after his request was turned down. Khadija vs the bar Is it justified when unity is used to endorse acts which are inherently immoral? In September 2016, Hussain's lawyer once again challenged the sessions court verdict in the Lahore High Court, but the court maintained the earlier verdict. Three days later the accused surrendered himself to police and was sent to prison. He remained behind bars for nearly two months and was subsequently released on December 1, 2016, after the sessions court granted him bail. Khadija filed an appeal against the court's decision, but it was dismissed.
  11. International scientists have uncovered prehistoric human DNA from caves without bones, an advance that could shed new light on human history and evolution. The study published in the journal Science is based on 85 samples from sediments dating to the Pleistocene, a period that extended from 550,000 years ago until 14,000 year before the modern era. The samples came from eight caves in Belgium, Croatia, France, Russia and Spain. These archeological sites are already well known to have been occupied by long-lost cousins of modern humans, Neanderthals and Denisovans, as well as by a variety of animals that are now extinct. "This work represents an enormous scientific breakthrough," said Antonio Rosas, scientist at Spain's Natural Science Museum in Madrid. "We can now tell which species of hominid occupied a cave and on which particular stratigraphic level, even when no bone or skeletal remains are present." To uncover human traces, scientists relied on analyzing fragments of mitochondrial DNA. "The technique could increase the sample size of the Neanderthal and Denisovan mitochondrial genomes, which until now were limited by the number of preserved remains," explained Spanish National Research Council scientist Carles Lalueza-Fox. "And it will probably be possible to even recover substantial parts of nuclear genomes."
