(Scroll down for video) People are flocking to a small town in India, to worship a little girl who was born with an elephant trunk nose.

The unnamed girl of Uttar Pradesh, was born with a big piece of skin that obscures her nose.

The doctors said that a genetic mutation combined with possible malnutrition, gave the girl the bulge. Residents however, said that there was something more divine at work.

They believe that the girl looks like the Hindu god of success, which has the head of an elephant on a human body. People rejoiced during her birth, singing and dancing in the streets.

Many visitors lined up to see the girl and give her their offerings. Police are keeping the crowd under control.

The girl's father, Om Prakash, said that he hoped the girl brings luck to her family because he only earns $4 a day as fruit vendor.

The girl's mother, Sarvesh, is still recovering. The girl will be able to undergo corrective surgery when she gets older.

A mother-in-law was horrified to learn that her daughter-in-law contaminated her tea with urine.

Rekha Nagvanshi, 30, of India, was caught red-handed squatting over the kettle by her mother-in-law, who walked into the kitchen and saw her doing it.

Rekha Nagvanshi admitted that she had done the same thing for a year, every time her in-laws came to visit.

Her friend, Alia Kohli, 32 said that Nagvanshi was unhappy with her arranged marriage to her husband Deepak, 34, and left him in Madhya Pradesh.

“Her husband treated her like a slave and she eventually decided she had enough. However, after moving out, Deepak begged her to come back for the sake of their 4-year-old daughter,” Kohli said.

The woman agreed to move back home on the condition that he would do the cooking and dishes, and also massage her feet.

His parents, Suraj, 60, and her husband Ajith, 55, discovered the arrangement and tried to stop it.

The frustrated daughter-in-law did not like the fact that her in-laws are interfering in their marriage so she urinated into the teapot before serving them tea.

Suraj said that they used to visit their son once or twice a week. “Although we knew that she was unhappy, we had no idea she was doing this,” Suraj said.

The in-laws filed a complaint with police, but so far, no arrest has been made.

Deepak left his wife after learning about the disturbing incident.

A woman of Indiana, was arrested, charged and convicted after she aborted her own baby.

33-year-old Purvi Patel was found guilty and sentenced to 20 years in prison for killing a fetus and child neglect.

Patel was arrested after delivering a stillborn baby and throw the body in a dumpster. This case is the first time a woman has been convicted of feticide for ending her own pregnancy.

In 2013, Patel went to the St. Joseph Regional Medical Center emergency room in Mishawaka, because she was bleeding profusely.

Doctors quickly realized that she had lost a pregnancy, and she confessed that she had left the fetus in a dumpster. Patel became a suspect and was subsequently questioned in the hospital after undergoing surgery to remove the placenta.

In addition to the charge of negligence, prosecutors later added the charge of feticide based on text messages that were on the woman’s phone, showing that she took abortion drugs, which she purchased online.

Toxicologists found no trace of such drugs in her body or in the fetus. However, the text messages was sufficient for a jury to convict Patel of feticide.

Feticide is a charge normally used against those who harm a pregnant women, but was never used for a pregnant woman aborting her own baby.

(Scroll down for video) 11 school workers of Georgia, were found guilty of helping students cheat on tests.

The teachers, a principal and other administrators, were found guilty of racketeering for their role in a conspiracy to inflate scores on standardized tests of students.

Only one teacher was acquitted of all charges.

The 11 convicted school educators who were accused of participating in the conspiracy, were driven by the pressure to comply with federal and local test standards so that they receive their bonuses or to keep their jobs in the Atlanta Public Schools district, which has about 50,000 students.

A state investigation found that educators gave answers to students or changed answers on tests after they were handed in.

The evidence of cheating was found in 44 schools with about 180 educators involved. Investigators found that teachers who tried to report the cheating faced retaliation.

A grand jury indicted 35 educators on charges of racketeering, false statements and theft.

Many reached plea agreements with prosecutors, and some testified at trial. Superintendent Beverly Hall never went to trial, arguing that he was too sick to mount a defense. She died of breast cancer last month.

Hall insisted that she was innocent and had no part in the conspiracy.

However, educators said that she was among those pressing them to inflate student grades to meet the federal guidelines related to the extra funding.

The educators who were found guilty of the charges, are being held without bail until sentencing. The racketeering charges carry up to 20 years in prison.

Teacher Shani Robinson was allowed to remain free on bail because she is due to give birth soon.
