New Delhi: The decision by the Madhya Pradesh High Court’s order on the sexual assault case to get a ‘rakhi’ tied by the woman had shocked the Nation to the core but the Supreme Court today scraped off the order after petitions from nine women lawyers ordered that stereotypes such as these, must be avoided in these cases.
The petitioners challenged the bail’s condition and stated that the order portrayed women as objects. Back in April 2020, Vikram Bagri was sent to jail in Ujjain on the charges of assaulting a neighbor. Then on July 30, Madhya Pradesh High Court’s Indore Bench granted conditional bail to him, on the condition was that the accused would go to the house of the woman on ‘Rakshabandhan‘ and get a rakhi tied and that he would protect the woman as a brother and also give her a compensation of Rs.11,000 and also pay another Rs.5000 for the woman’s childs clothes and sweets.
The court had also demanded the submission of the photographs of the event.
