The Delhi High Court has said Judicial officers should not mention the name of victims in the judgements passed in sexual assault cases and they ‘must avoid’ disclosing the identity to protect their reputation. Justice SP Garg said this while noting that a magistrate as well as district and sessions judge had mentioned the name of victim in their orders in a molestation case.
