Rampur: Bhawna Rastogi, wife of the serial offender arrested by police from East Delhi’s Ashok Nagar for sexually abusing a string of minor girls, has said that she and her children seek capital punishment for the paedophile whose notoriety has made their lives “hell”.
Bhawna, who has five children from the 17-year-old marriage and is suffering from bone tumour which has caused deformity in her spinal cord, told TOI on Tuesday that her husband was always “looking for sex” and used to frequent Delhi-NCR to target innocent children.
“I was badly tortured by Sunil (Rastogi) when I opposed his filthy deeds. Desperate for sex, he often ran away from the house without informing anybody to look for vulnerable targets. Six months ago when he was released from Haldwani jail, I had advised him to stop his activities as his own daughters could be targeted by a pervert someday. But he ignored me and continued with his depraved acts,” Bhawna said.

In 2016 when Sunil was jailed for sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl in Rudrapur, the family shifted to Bilaspur tehsil in Rampur and began to live in Gopal Vihar locality with Bhawna’s brother Naresh Saini, who works as a plumber.
“Seventeen years ago, when they had an arranged marriage, Sunil was known as a good tailor in the vicinity who worked in NCR. Today, everybody knows him as a serial child rapist,” Saini said.
Sunil was released from Haldwani jail in May 2016 and came back to Bilaspur. However, when his notoriety began to affect even Saini’s family, Bhawna had to shift house again to neighbouring Sharda Colony in Bilaspur, where they live now.
“After news of his arrest was on TV, residents of Sharda Colony objected to the family’s stay here. I had spent Rs 50,000 to get him bail in Rudrapur. But he jumped it and as a result cops in Uttarakhand’s Udham Singh Nagar and UP’s Rampur have been summoning me from time to time to know his whereabouts,” Saini said.
His eldest son who used to work as an apprentice at a tailoring shop was asked not to report to work ever since Sunil was arrested in Delhi last week. His 16-year-old daughter works in the nearby houses as domestic help.
Sharda Colony chowki in-charge Mahendra Singh Chawl said, “We have checked our records and found that Sunil has no cases registered here. However, if his family members, who were well aware of his activities, would have informed us earlier, a few children could have been protected.”
Carnaby’s cockatoos may vanish from Perth unless pine clearing stopped, WWF says
Feb 24, 2017 – ABC
Western Australia’s iconic Carnaby’s cockatoo could be lost from the Perth metropolitan area if pine plantation clearing in the city’s north is not halted, WWF Australia has warned.
There has been a 53 per cent decline since 2010 in the northern population, which feeds and roosts in the Gnangara-Yanchep-Pinjar pine plantation, according to figures from Birdlife Australia.
Carnaby’s cockatoos adapted to pine as a food source after the decline of the now-endangered Banksia woodlands.
WWF Australia species conservation manager Merril Halley said the WA Government’s decision to stop replanting the 23,000 hectare pine plantation in the early 2000s was now posing a threat to the species.
“Since 2004, there’s been no real replanting occurring, and [the area] is down to about 8,500 hectares of the pine plantation remaining,” she said.

“That is a significant loss of that food source for the birds when they first come back to the coastal plane.”
Ms Halley said government projections predicted a further halving of the bird’s remaining population should the pine plantation be completely harvested.
“The modelling shows there will be a loss of 50 per cent of the birds over a number of years,” she said.
“That’s on top of the decline we’re already seeing.”
We are tackling decline: Minister
The State Government acknowledged the decline of the cockatoo population, and said it was working on a strategy to aid numbers while fulfilling contractual obligations and preparing for a bigger human population.
“The draft Strategic Assessment of the Perth and Peel regions has a specific aim of arresting the long term decline of the Carnaby’s cockatoo,” Environment Minister Albert Jacob said.
“Under business as usual, the Carnaby’s cockatoo will continue to decline.
“The landscape scale response of the strategic assessment is the best option to protect this species.”
The draft contains several measures to protect the species, including the creation of 700 artificial hollows between Eneabba and Ravensthorpe and a commitment to replant 5,000 hectares of pines to compensate for harvesting of the plantations.
Ms Halley said the WWF welcomed the concept of a strategic assessment, but said the plan did not go far enough.
“It does not protect Carnaby’s cockatoos at all,” she said.
“We’re going to see the impact of implementing that plan will be huge loss and potentially the loss of the Carnaby’s cockatoos from the Swan Coastal Plain.”
Pine harvest must be stopped: WWF
Ms Halley said the clearing of the pine plantations needed to be halted until the habitat loss had been addressed, and urged Federal Environment Minister Josh Frydenburg to intervene.
“The continuing harvest of the pines must be stopped until there is agreement on how to properly address habitat loss for Carnaby’s cockatoos,” she said.
In 2002, the state entered a contract with Wesbeam for the supply of timber from softwood plantations around the Gnangara Mound, in an effort to protect the valuable underground water supply.
The Gnangara Mound — which is located under the plantations — provides approximately 30 per cent of Perth’s drinking water each year.
“Retaining large areas of pine plantations within Gnangara, Pinjar and Yanchep … would reduce ground water recharge into the Gnangara mound,” Mr Jacob said.
Mr Jacob said the state was continuing to work with the Commonwealth to finalise the draft strategic assessment in 2017.
