New Delhi, Sep 22 :
The Supreme Court will Tuesday hear a plea alleging police inaction on a complaint by a woman advocate from Chhattisgarh alleging gang rape by her husband’ family members and two others Nov 29, 2013.
When the apex court bench headed by Chief Justice R.M. Lodha was about to leave a court room after the completion of cases listed before it Monday, the woman advocate got up crying for justice, saying she was gang raped.
She said despite lodging complaints, Chhattisgarh police have taken no action against her perpetrators.
As she was not clearly audible, the apex court asked another lady lawyer sitting next to her to tell the court what she was saying.
The woman advocate said she has consumed naphthalene balls. At this the apex court directed her to be taken to its Central Government Health Scheme’s first aid centre. She was later shifted to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital.
Taking suo motu cognizance of the matter, the apex court said it will hear the case Tuesday.
