Gang rape survivor who was sent to jail as a result of an argument before the magistrate during recording of her statement has been granted bail on Friday. 

The fast step was taken after several hundreds of lawyers wrote letters to the Chief Justice of Patna High Court regarding the issue.

Earlier, While her statement under Section 164 of IPC was being recorded, a commotion broke out, and the magistrate could not even make the simple differentiation between a disoriented mind, coming off a violent gang rape and an affront. Shockingly enough, the magistrate’s ego perceived it as the latter, a personal affront. He remanded her and her two friends (the NGO workers acting as caregivers) into custody for contempt of court.

In continuation to this lawyers from across the country, including some very senior lawyers of the Supreme Court, have written a letter to the Chief Justice of Patna High Court, expressing outrage at the jailing of a violent gang-rape victim and her two caregivers by a magistrate at the Araria district court. The letter has also sought urgent and systemic changes in the treatment of survivors of violent sexual crimes.
