KOZHIKODE> It is extremely worrying that the courts are going to the extent of justifying heinous assaults on ladies by stating purely private issues like gown, Adv P Sate Devi, chairperson of the Fee.
The order issued by the Kozhikode Periods Court docket granting bail within the sexual harassment case towards author and social activist Civic Chandra is kind of unlucky. “It is clear from the photographs produced by the accused along with the bail application that the complainant was wearing sexually provocative clothes. Section 354A prima facie does not apply in this case,” the order mentioned. “It is not acceptable to grant bail on the basis that the case is non-sustainable, rather than considering the circumstances for bail while granting bail.”
By making such references even earlier than the proof is offered and the trial is held, the court docket is successfully dismissing the allegations of the complainant. This sends a really unsuitable message in severe circumstances like rape. Such an incident has taken place right here in Kerala too, whereas discussions are occurring in regards to the Gujarat authorities’s choice to acquit the accused within the Bilkis Banu case throughout the Gujarat Genocide. Sate Devi mentioned that there’s a want for a reconsideration of such measures that are inflicting concern for the ladies group within the nation.
