In Delhi all cases of sexual harassment which are pending will be heard in Delhi High Court on a “priority basis”.
This follows a directive from high court Chief Justice D. Murugesan.
A circular which is issued by him has mentioned that “Chief Justice has desired that considering the large pendency of cases related to sexual harassment (of) women, priority will be given to such cases.
“It has been directed that all such cases will be segregated … and listed before the courts on priority basis,” it read.
The move follows the gang-rape of a young woman in Delhi who died in Singapore after 13 days.
