The judge observed that the incident occurred in 2015 and the victim lodged a complaint with the police in July of the same year. A writ petition was filed regarding these before the court in 2016. After hearing, the judge directed the Registrar of MSU to submit a report of the internal inquiry committee’s findings concerning such allegations to the Pettai Inspector of Police within a period of three weeks. The Inspector of Police should register a case without further delays and complete the investigation within three months.
