The Delhi High Court has directed the Central government to ‘expeditiously’ look into the demand for creating guidelines for the regulation of conduct of public servants towards women outside the workplace.
During hearing on a Public Interest Litigation filed before the court of Chief Justice NV Ramana and Justice RS Endlaw, advocate Kirti Singh mentioned the the remarks made in November by the CBI director comparing betting to rape, and the comments made by the Andhra DGP regarding women’s clothing.
The PIL had sought suspension of the CBI director for his remarks, and had demanded modification of the service rules for senior officials, seeking that there should be guidelines to regulate their conduct towards women outside of the workplace as senior officials have made remarks against the dignity of women.
While the court did not make any comment on the demand for suspension of the CBI director, it has asked the Central government to look into provisions regarding service rules.
