Women in India are protesting against the new law on rape and domestic violence in Delhi, where they are protesting for a women’s right to a fair trial and the right to access to justice.
The Delhi High Court has said the law does not allow for a woman to appeal against the verdict, which was delivered by the Delhi High Commission on Friday.
The Supreme Court on Saturday upheld the verdict and the Delhi HC said the Delhi police had failed to provide adequate security for the women who are demanding justice in the rape and murder case.
The new law requires women to register rape complaints with the Delhi Police in Delhi and Delhi police will conduct the case if there is a finding that the rape happened.
Women who lodge complaints will also have to submit evidence of the crime, including physical evidence.
In a written order dated April 30, the Supreme Court said that the Delhi law was “unjust, arbitrary and violates fundamental rights”.
The Delhi police told The Associated Press that it has not received any notification from the Delhi government.
A spokesperson for the Delhi Home Ministry said that no one from the Home Ministry was available for comment.
