Indian man jailed in Austrlia for raping friend
Report dated 28/06/2014 @ 7:57 PM
An Indian man Friday was jailed for six years in Australia of raping a woman he met on a social-networking site after getting drunk, media reported Friday.
A judge said that the man, who had emigrated from India to Australia in 2009, told a psychologist he had had difficulty reconciling with the sexual norms of Indian culture with those in Australia, the Melbourne Age reported.
The 24-year-old Indian man met the 18-year-old victim, also an Indian and a first-year university student, on Facebook and would meet up to play video games. They kissed but were not in a sexual relationship, the judge said.
The report did not disclose the names of the victim and the perpetrator or the place where the incident happened.
The man invited the woman to his residence in March last year and offered her alcohol on arriving.
According to the judge, the woman, who never had alcohol before, took a few sips of raspberry vodka mixed with cola and had two shots of straight vodka before feeling sleepy and lying on the couch.
"On waking up, the girl could smell vomit on herself and some in her hair, was dazed and noticed she was not wearing her bra or jacket," the judge said.
Despite a lot of threats from the man, including claims of possession of sex tapes, she finally informed the police about the incident.
The man pleaded guilty to two charges of rape, one charge of assault and one charge of intentionally damaging property.
He also told a psychologist that, after the victim passed out, he started having sex with her because it was his first time.

Narendra Tulsiram, 50, of the Bronx, has been sentenced in Manhattan federal court to 25 years jail, for sexually exploiting a child for nearly five years and transporting and possessing images of child pornography. He has also been sentenced to a lifetime of supervised release and ordered to register as a sex offender.
For 5 years Tulsiram preyed on his victim. The abuse began when the victim was 13 years old.
He took sexually explicit photographs of his abuse of the minor girl and in 2011 after the girl resisted his requests for additional sexual encounters, sent them to her via e-mails with threats of sharing them with others including her family.
The threatening e-mails and obscene pictures of Tulsiram with the girl were found following a forensic analysis of his cell phone after his arrest.
Bahrain NRI jailed for robbing compatriot
Report dated 25/06/2014 @ 12:57 PM
An unnamed NRI age 31 and his Bahraini accomplice, posed as police officers and kidnapped and robbed an NRI labourer last September. They took the man to the desert, tied him up and covered his face before stealing two mobile phones and 360 dinars, then abandoned him.
Both men have been convicted of theft, assault, kidnap and impersonating officers and they have each been sentenced to 15 years in jail. The NRI is to be deported on completion of his sentence.
Prosecutors say the suspects also stole around 10,000 dinars by randomly targeting expatriates in Bahrain in December 2013. The NRI who was employed in the Bahrain interior ministry for 9 years said he carried out the crimes because he needed money, and after he quit his job he and his friend drew up plans to kidnap and rob people in the country.
