We bet you all remember Jasleen Kaur-Sarveet Singh case. Well, Sarvjeet Singh Bedi is the man who allegedly passed lewd comments at Jasleen while she was walking down Delhi’s Tilak Nagar Street in August 2015. We all know how Sarvjeet has been given hearing dates by the Tis Hazari court, and yesterday was just another one. If you recall, we told you about how the case has not been going forward from the last 1.5 year, but this time, some decision was taken. And it will surprise you.
If you are thinking that he didn’t get another date, then you’re wrong. Well, this time, Sarvjeet was charged under IPC Sections 354A and 506, and he got next hearing on June 28, 2017. Section 354A is sexual harassment and punishment for sexual harassment while Section 506 is punishment for criminal intimidation. Shocked? Well, so were we.
He took to Facebook to inform people about the proceedings of the Jasleen Kaur case. We are not denying that eve-teasing isn’t a serious offence, but is it fair to charge someone without any proper evidence? That’s what has happened with Sarvjeet. Here’s what he wrote on Facebook –
Again got a new date 28 june 2017
But is baar judge ne mere against charges lagaye hai 354a and 506… Or next date me ab lawyer ki baari hai kuch karne ki…
So hope for the best fet next date…
Let’s see what happens next time.
