Sexual harassment case: HC declines to suspend prison sentence of former TN special DGP


PTI, Apr 23, 2024, 2:41 PM IST

The Madras High Court on Tuesday declined to suspend a three year pirson term imposed on former Tamil Nadu special DGP Rajesh Das in a sexual harassment case, even as it observed that offences against women, girls and girl children were steeply increasing.

Dismissing the criminal miscellaneous petitions, Justice M Dhandapani also refused to exempt Das from surrendering before the trial court. Das was convicted and sentenced to three years’ rigorous imprisonment by a Villupuram local court for allegedly sexually harassing a woman IPS officer in 2021.

Originally, Das had filed a criminal revision petition, assailing the order of the Principal District and Sessions Court, Villupuram, in and by which the conviction and sentence imposed on him by the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Villupuram dated June 16, 2023 were confirmed. During the pendency of this petition, he filed the present criminal miscellaneous petitions.
