In yet another quirky verdict, a village panchayat in Gujarat imposed ban on use of cell phones among unmarried women. If anyone witnesses an unmarried lady using a cell phone, they will be rewarded, the panchayat announced. The ban was imposed in the wake of the fact that many young women are being hoodwinked by men, who promise marriage but later abandon them, the panchayat members said. Their verdict is meant to protect the women, they said adding that soon the ban will be extended to children.
