Read Judgment

The Supreme Court has stayed a Kerala High Court order which had upheld the reinstatement to service of a rape accused college lecturer who had married the victim [The Manager, Ansar Arabic College v. P Shamsudheen].

The lecturer who was already married with children was accused of raping a student. Subsequently, he had contracted a second marriage with that student.

In a separate proceeding, the rape case against him was quashed by the Kerala High Court on the ground that he had married the victim.

Meanwhile, the management of the college initiated action against him on charges including the rape allegations, tarnishing the image of the college and entering into second marriage without permission from the government.
