Kerala HC quashes proceedings against the 6 accused women including two lady lawyers in Cochin ‘Nude Protest case

Women activists in Kerala were protesting against the rape of two Dalit girls in UP.In its judgement the Kerala High Court has said,"On an evaluation of the entire facts and circumstances of this case, has no hesitation to hold that by no stretch of imagination can it be held that the accused have in any way committed an act, which amounts to a lascivious act or which appeals to the prurient interest or that it tended to deprave, corrupt and defile the morals of any persons, so as to attract the vital elements of obscenity as contemplated in Secs.292 and 294(a) of the I.P.C.”
