Thiruvananthapuram: Opposition leader VD Satheesan said that the court’s remarks against the complainant woman in the sexual assault case against Civic Chandran are quite shocking. ‘In which era is the judge living in?’, he questioned. He also asked where the people would go if the institutions that are in place to ensure justice take such stand in such matters.

He said that he hopes that the High Court will intervene in the row triggered by the court’s unfortunate remark.

Kozhikode District Sessions Court in Kerala had observed that the offence under

under Section 354A of the Indian Penal Code (sexual harassment) is not prima facie attracted, when the woman was wearing ‘sexually provocative dress’.

The court made the observation on Wednesday while granting bail to 74-year-old social activist and writer Civic Chandran in a sexual abuse case.
