CHANDIGARH: The Punjab and Haryana High Court Friday asked Punjab home secretary to explain why a woman who gave birth to a child after being repeatedly raped be not immediately given cash compensation and why a red corner notice be not issued against the culprit. The court was hearing the petition of the 28-year-old victim in which she had sought registration of a criminal case and its transfer to an independent investigating agency outside Punjab besides seeking police protection, DNA testing for ascertaining paternity of her female child as also seeking rehabilitative aid, assistance or compensation from the state government. The Additional Advocate General Punjab, Yatinder Sharma, sought time from the court to seek instructions from the Home Secretary. The case would come up for hearing on March 15.
