Earlier on August 3, as per PTI report, concerned over the huge pendency of child abuse cases in trial courts, the Delhi High Court said it will pass appropriate orders in the matter. The issue came to the high court’s attention when a bail plea of an accused in such a case was mentioned before a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar.
The lawyer for the accused told the bench he had moved to the high court as the trial court, set up under the POCSO Act, set a date of July 25, 2018, for the recording of the evidence in the case and also dismissed his bail plea and early hearing application.
The lawyer, Vibhas K Jha, also told the bench that the trial court in Tis Hazari gave such a long date as 996 cases under the Prevention of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act were already pending before it. The court then asked the lawyer what was the situation in the other POCSO courts in Delhi, to which Jha said there was huge pendency of POCSO cases in all district courts except the one at Saket.
