The Delhi Court on Monday urged Unnao rape survivor to move out only when necessary and inform her security well before venturing out, so that proper measures are put in place for her safety.
The court said that if survivors or family members wish to go outside Delhi in connection with any pending case, they would communicate it to Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) Assistant Commandant so that they can be provided with proper security arrangements.
District and Sessions Judge Dharmesh Sharma's direction came while hearing an application filed by the victim.
The victim had filed an application alleging that she and her family were being harassed by the personal security officers deployed to protect her as they are not allowing her to enjoy her liberties.
Taking note of her submissions, the judge said "inform them [security officers] before going out. They are deputed for your security. You must plan in a way that you don't have to venture out every day. Go out only when necessary. You must take precautions until the case is over."
The court also noted the victim and her personal security officers have agreed to amicably resolve the issue.
