1. It is a condition to be with ablution and remain in the state of purity to touch the Qur’an Shareef. It is Makrooh e Thahreemi to touch the Qur’an Shareef without having ablution and in a state of impurity
2,3. If an Ayath of Qur’an Shareef or a portion of Hadees is found written on a Newspaper or a literature it should be respected just as it is necessary to respect in the case of Qur’an Shareef and Books of Ahadees . All such papers where Qur’an Ayath , Ahadees or the blessed name of Allah is written should be collected and bury in such a place where there is no fear of being disrespected or people moving over it. If it is impossible then arrangements should be made to cause it to drown on a river etc.
