Opposition leaders came down heavily, here on Thursday, on the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) government for revealing the identity of a Pollachi sex abuse victim.
The government in its order transferring the Pollachi sexual abuse-cum-blackmail case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had mentioned the name of a victim.
DMK President M.K. Stalin said as per the Supreme Court’s directives names of sexual assault victims should not be revealed. Stalin said the government in its order transferring the case to the CBI had not only mentioned the girl’s name but also the college in which she is studying.
