Lewd Remarks Against Women: Jail Term to IRS Officer

An Indian Revenue Services (IRS) officer was today sentenced to 15 days in jail by the Delhi High Court which held him guilty of its contempt for using "scurrilous" terms against his women colleagues despite its warnings against doing so.

"I direct that respondent (S K Srivastava) be committed to civil prison to undergo simple imprisonment for a period of fifteen days. It is ordered accordingly. In addition, a fine of Rs 2000 is also imposed on him," Justice Rajiv Shakdher said.

The court held Srivastava guilty of its contempt for disobeying its various orders which had restrained him from using "s*xually offensive and scurrilous" statements against his two women colleagues in the Income Tax Department.
