CHANDIGARH: Punjab and Haryana high court said the assault on a 55-year-old Tarn Taran woman – who was stripped and paraded semi-naked after her son eloped with a woman from the locality and married her, much to the ire of her kin – reminded it of the “Mahabharat-era cheerharan of Draupadi”.
“I am reminded of the historical event that had taken place during Mahabharat era – cheerharan of Draupadi at the behest of Kauravas, and the silence of the Pandavas and Bhishma Pitamah – which ultimately resulted in bloodshed of thousands in Mahabharat war,” observed Justice Sanjay Vashisht.
Centuries thereafter, an ordinary man does not expect even today that the judiciary would be a mute spectator in such an incident, happening sinfully and openly under the nose of the administration, the judge said, while referring the matter to the acting Chief Justice for treating it as a PIL.
