Law should take its own course: Speaker on Tejpal case

Meira Kumar
Kolkata, Nov 23: Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar on Saturday said that the law should take its own course in the Tarun Tejpal alleged sex assault case and whatever needs to be done should be done expeditiously.

"I think law should take its own course and whatever needs to be done according to law must be done expeditiously," she told reporters on the sidelines of an interactive session organised by MMC Chamber of Commerce and Industry here.

She said any incident where "the dignity and security" of women is compromised is "something of great concern".

"...and it should not happen...our tradition and culture does not allow it".

She highlighted the stringency of the existing laws after the Delhi gang-rape case in Dec 2012.

"As the speaker, I would say in our parliament also in last December (2012) the House unanimously passed a resolution and existing laws were made stringent."
