Nearly two months after CBI Director Ranjit Sinha’s controversial ‘rape’ analogy, the Ministry of Home Affairs was today directed by the Delhi High Court to examine framing of guidelines with respect to government servants’ “conduct” outside “office area” or in public. A bench headed by Chief Justice N V Ramana gave the direction while disposing of a PIL filed by Sudha Sundaraman of All India Democratic Women’s Association and the Susheela Gopalan Trust seeking a code of conduct to be followed by public servants “outside their offices“.

The PIL had been filed against the CBI Director and MHA for his remark made in November last year at a public event wherein he had said, “If you cannot enforce the ban on betting, it is like saying if you can’t prevent rape, you enjoy it.”The court also directed the petitioner to submit their suggestions before the ministry which would then examine it for framing the guidelines.During the day’s hearing, counsel for the petitioner advocate Kirti Singh submitted, “The CBI Director undermined the seriousness of the crime, which is a serious act of violence and since it (remark) was made in public it was directed towards all women in general.”
