Kejriwal asks for control of Delhi Police
Two girls, aged two-and-a-half and five, were gangraped in separate incidents in Delhi on Friday, a week after the horrific rape of a four-year-old girl in the capital. In the first incident, in west Delhi's Nangloi area, a two-and-a-half-year-old girl was raped by two men who abducted her from outside her home. In the second case, a five-year-old was raped by three men in east Delhi's Anand Vihar area when alone at home. Both girls were admitted to hospital with severe injuries. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, accusing them of not taking any action to stop the repeated rape of minors in the capital. He also asked for the control of the Delhi police to be given to the state government, as opposed to the Centre.

39% judge vacancies in high courts, claims report
Twenty four high courts in the country have a total of 397 vacancies for judges, while eight of them have acting chief justices, according to a report in the Times of India. The vacancy level of 39% is a serious shortfall considering lakhs of cases are still pending in the courts, the report said. After the Supreme Court on Friday struck down the National Judicial Advisory Committee Act, which aimed to give the government a role in appointing judges, it is not clear so far whether these vacancies can now be filled via the collegium system, in which a few judges make the appointments.
