On Monday, Chief Justice SA Bobde clarified his remarks, asking a survivor victim to marry his attacker during last week’s trial that sparked outrage “completely reported”, according to several media reports.
The bench of the Supreme Court, led by CJI and consisting of judges AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian, said “we have a lot of respect for women”, reports PTI.
On Monday the court heard the case of a 14-year-old pregnant survivor who wanted an abortion for nearly 26 weeks.
The dignity of the judiciary is in the hands of its lawyers, the bench has been added according to the PTI.
The bench press talks, on International Women’s Day, come after Judge Bobde last week reportedly asked a 23-year-old civil servant if he could marry the woman he accused of assault.
The remarks expressed outrage at journalists and activists who wanted the suspects to be charged in connection with the case.
Many women’s rights activists, celebrities, academics, writers and musicians have also written an open letter to the high court demanding an apology and withdrawal of words.
CPI (M) politburo member Brinda Karat wrote to the chief executive asking him to retract his alleged remarks during the March 1 hearing on the suspects’ bail application.
‘Even at that hearing, we never made the suggestion that you should marry. We asked her if she would marry! ‘, Adds CJI, according to Live Law.
According to Bar and Bench, Attorney-General Tushar Mehta has partnered with CJI.
“You asked the question differently. Mehta has said that it was quoted out of context” .
“A statement if distorted out of context would mean something different,” Mehta said, according to Live Law.
According to Bar and Bench, CJI Bobde then asked SG Mehta to read Section 165 of the Indian Evidence Act:141. Judge’s power to cross-examine or order production ; and may hear the execution of any document or object; and their parties or their agents shall not be permitted to challenge any such question or order, or, without the Court’s consent, to cross-examine any witness in any response provided to answer this question. “
“You fully agree with the authority of Section 165 of the Evidence Act,” Mehta replied, according to the report.
Advocate VK Biju, from the applicant in the case on Monday’s list, said there were some people who were polluting the center and needed some way to deal with it, according to the PTI
“As an institution and Court, we have always had the highest respect for womanhood”, the CJI reiterated. “Our honor is in hands of the Bar.
Speaking about the previous case, the bench said on Monday, “We do not remember that there was a marriage case before us. We all have a lot of respect towards women.”
In March 1, Bobde-led bench heard the defendants’ application, acting as an expert at Maharashtra State Electricity Production Company Ltd, who had filed a lawsuit in Bombay High Court on February 5 to cancel his expected bail.
The bench, which included judges Bopanna and Ramasubramanian, had asked the defendant, “Are you willing to marry him?”
A Social Media Court Where People Can Discuss, Debate and Disseminate decided to examine if the prosecution against him should be terminated. “What do you think?
Are they forcing you to get married? she said. The man’s lawyer said the suspect initially intended to marry the girl but had refused and was now married to someone else.
