Female magistrate accuses lawyer of sexual harassment in court

HAPPmolestA female magistrate at a traffic court in Delhi has alleged that she was sexually harassed by a lawyer inside the courtroom during the hearing of a case on October 30.

In her complaint the magistrate said the lawyer used abusive language in court and his behaviour forced the magistrate to adjourn the court. When she did so, the lawyer continued using filthy abusive language when addressing her.

The advocate had appeared in court in connection with a vehicle impound case in a drunken driving incident. He did not agree with the magistrate’s decision and an argument ensued. The advocate says he had filed a complaint about the magistrate with the district judge and the bar association, and when the lady came to know she filed a false case against him.

A case has been registered against the accused lawyer who has not been arrested yet.
