The judgment of the Supreme Court docket of Bombay that pores and skin on pores and skin quantities to sexual assault is “disturbing”: The Supreme Court docket has waived it
Previously, the Nagpur Bank of the Bombay Supreme Court ruled that squeezing the chest of a 12-year-old child did not constitute sexual assault under POCSO law. there was stuff in between.
Today the Supreme Court suspended the Nagpur Bank ruling of the Bombay Supreme Court. where the court ruled that if the top is not removed; it will not be sexual assault.
The Chief Justice of India called the sentence “disturbing”.
The Bombay Supreme Court previously acquitted the defendant of charges under the POCSO (Sexual Assault) Act. and rather accused him under less stringent legal provisions.
Attorney General Venugopal suggested that this ruling will set a dangerous precedent.
The part of Section 7 of the Sexual Assault (POCSO) Act is that there should be “sexual intent”; and it must involve physical contact with a child’s vagina, penis, anus, or chest.
It should be noted that the Bombay Supreme Court ruling received a lot of criticism because the Bombay Supreme Court’s reasoning was inconclusive.
