Female #Judge on #SexualHarassment Committee Quits Job Over Her Own Sexual Harassment

Gwalior, August 04, 2014

An additional district and sessions judge in Gwalior, who was heading the Vishaka committee against sexual harassment, said she had to resign from her job because she was being sexually harassed by a high court judge.  She had been posted as additional district and sessions judge in Gwalior in October 2012.  In April 2013, she was appointed chairperson of District Vishaka Committee on sexual harassment. Her annual confidential report of January 2014 termed her work “excellent and outstanding”.   However, thereafter, according to her complaints, the administrative judge from Gwalior bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court began to pressurize her to visit him in his bungalow alone.
