CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu, the land of spirituality and divinity has somehow turned out to be a land of rapes, the Madras High Court has observed. Justice N Kirubakaran made the observation while hearing a case relating to the rape of a 60 year-old mentally retarded woman on November 10, 2016, through video-conferencing from here.

 

While sitting in the Madurai Bench, the case had been posted before him."Even toddlers or children are not spared by these brute beasts. Something basically is wrong with the development of the society or the psychology of men," the judge added.

Originally, when the matter came up before him on December 15 last year at the Madurai bench, the judge had raised a set of questions to be answered by the Union Home Affairs and Women Welfare and Child Development Ministries in New Delhi, all relating to the cause for increase in sexual crimes against women and children in India .

Now, the judge said that if the response is not filed by the next hearing date, the respective Secretaries of the relevant departments shall appear before the Court, he warned. Similarly, for not answering the questions raised to the State, the judge said that if the affidavit is not filed by August 1, the State Home secretary shall appear in person before him, on that date.
