Abstract: A surprising order from MP High Court has asked an accused in a sexual harassment case to go to the victim’s house on Raksha Bandhan so that she can tie a rakhi on him. This trivialises the condition of bail and led Attorney General KK Venugopal to tell a Supreme Court bench that there is a need to educate judges on gender sensitisation as orders “objectifying women is a gross trivialisation of the distress”.
