Investigation In Sexual Harassment & Assault Complaint Made In 2014 Pending Till Date: Delhi High Court Directs Appearance Of DCP
The Delhi High Court has sought personal appearance of a DCP of Delhi Police in an “unfortunate” case where the police has failed to take any steps to complete the investigation qua an FIR for sexual harassment registered in 2014. Justice Subramonium Prasad, while directing the DCP to appear before the Court on Friday, expressed its displeasure for the second time in the matter. The State has now been directed to clarify the exact stage of investigation. The Court was dealing with a petition filed by a woman seeking directions on the Delhi Police to protect her and her mother’s life and liberty from the hands of the accused persons. Pursuant to the order passed by the Court in September last year expressing its displeasure on Police’s conduct, a status report was filed in November 2020 stating that the complainant lady was found in an injured condition.
