Whistling part of college life, not s*xual harassment, says SC

THE SUPREME Court on Thursday said it would consider framing a policy on s*xual harassment at higher educational institutions. A bench headed by Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan directed the petitioner Medha Kotwal to submit suggestions regarding the policy .
The bench asked senior advocate Colin Gonsalves appearing for the petitioner to specify how s*xual harassment should be d e f i n e d . “Whistling cannot be categorised as s e x u a l harassment,” said the CJI, adding: “This is part of college life.” He also declined to entertain the petitioner’s plea to have a police probe in cases involving s*xual harassment.
Asking Kotwal to concentrate on educational institutions, the bench said her suggestions to deal with s*xual harassment of a student should be different from that of a college employee. “The two cannot be covered by a common policy,” the bench added.
Kotwal had approached Supreme Court seeking its direction to categorise s*xual harassment and also order police probe in such cases.
