New Delhi, 09 October 2021

As per news report of The Indian Express,  the petition, filed by inspector E Nirmala of the all-woman police station at the Principal District Court, comes a week after a Mahila Court in Coimbatore handed over 29-year-old flight lieutenant Amitesh Harmukh’s custody to the IAF. The petition, filed Thursday, argues that handing over the accused to IAF for court martial may be considered only at a later stage as the case was currently being investigated by the all-woman police in Coimbatore where the survivor filed her complaint. It said the accused should be in judicial custody during investigation and until a chargesheet is filed.
