In the Andaman & Nicobar gangrape case, the SC tells the ex-chief secretary to go to the sessions court
Despite allegations of gang rape and sexual abuse, the Supreme Court refused to set aside anticipatory bail granted to the former Andaman and Nicobar chief secretary, Jitendra Narain.
He has to go to the sessions court by November 9 to apply for bail.
As a result of the allegations, the Centre suspended a senior IAS officer and the chairman and managing director of Delhi Financial Corporation on October 17.
Two serving bureaucrats, including Narain, were accused of gang rape and sexual assault by a 21-year-old woman on October 15.
An FIR was filed on October 1 against Narain and RL Rishi, posted as labour commissioner in Andaman & Nicobar Islands, based on a complaint from the survivor. A Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been set up to investigate.
