As per of her criminal case against Santosh Chaubey (Aayogmitra of MP Human Rights Commission), who was sending her indecent messages, she visited the Judicial Magistrate. to give her statement.
“While I was giving my statement, an advocate named Lalit Sharma was standing next, overhearing my statement, along with others in the court. I asked the judicial magistrate to ask others to leave as I was uncomfortable giving my statement in front of so many people. On saying this, Lalit Sharma started shouting at me, saying “how dare you suggest me to leave, I am an advocate here and you might be an officer in your office but not in the Court”. I told him that the privacy I am demanding is not as an IAS officer but as a woman and laws provide me with that.”
When she spoke up to the Judicial Magistrate about discretion when hearing a woman’s statement, “…he said that you are young and that’s why demanding such things.”
It is horrifying that an IAS officer has to regret being born in India. In her words: If you are born in this country, better prepare yourself for struggle at every step or die within every day.
