Sexually coloured remarks: Comments on the looks and gait of a person without any specific reference to the dress or any body part of a person can not be considered as sexually colored, ruled Delhi’s Patiala High Court.
The observation was made by additional sessions judge Rajinder Singh on Saturday. He dismissed a woman’s plea against a man under Section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
The charges against two other men were framed under the same Section but they were discharged under Section 354A (sexual harassment).
‘Made offensive comments’
The woman had alleged that the three men made offensive comments and certain remarks about her and also used to stare at her with an ‘evil eye’.
The court said that the alleged acts of the accused persons would not fall under Section 354A (1)(A) of the IPC while perusing the documents. “The woman specifically mentioned that he was murmuring something but she did not stop there to hear,” the court said while discharging the accused under section 509 of the IPC.
The court also noted that there was no specific mention of any alleged words attributable to the man or no specific allegations that he made any sound or gesture or exhibiting any object intending it to be seen by the woman with the intention of insulting her modesty or intruding upon her privacy.
