Women facing harassment can write to us

Those who burn brides need to be hanged

"People like you need to be hanged, You behave like junglee (animal)," Justice Katju rebuked the petitioner Gulati as his counsel pleaded for interim bail for his client.

As the counsel pleaded saying that it was case of suicide and not bride burning, Justice Katju said: "They all say that. Every time they burn a bride, they say it was a suicide."

"On one hand they regard women as devi (goddess), on the other hand they burn them alive. This is against the norms of civilized society. It's barbaric," said Justice Katju.
