NEW DELHI: Attorney general K K Venugopal on Monday told Supreme Court that a Madhya Pradesh HC judge’s decision to grant bail to a person accused of outraging the modesty of a woman on the condition that he gets a rakhi tied by her was nothing but a script straight out of a Bollywood film which had no sanctity in criminal law jurisprudence, reports Dhananjay Mahapatra.
“Judges, while dealing with crimes against women, need to restrict themselves to the confines of criminal laws and not resort to dramatic orders. Gender sensitisation of judges in HCs and trial courts are the need of the day.State judicial academies can be asked to regularly hold lectures on this issue to sensitise them. They must know what is permissible and what is not,” the AG said.
