Sexual harassment of women to be non-bailable in Maharastra

Keeping in view the growing number of sexual harassment and attrocities committed against the modesty of females, Maharastra Government is considering making such offences as non-bailable.

The matter was discussed extensively at a meeting Presided over by Home Minister R.R. Patil and top government officials on Friday evening which deliberated upon measures to reduce crimes against women.

This is proposed to be made through an amendment of section 354 of IPC.

Anyhow it is considered as a good step and will help reduce the sexual attrocities on women and the girl child to some extend, if rules and laws are equal for the haves and have nots and the influenced and the ordinary person...!
