The Supreme Court on October 22, 2018, declined urgent hearing on a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking the registration of First Information of Reports (FIR) based on allegations of sexual misconduct and assault levelled by women across various sectors, part of what is being referred to as India’s #MeToo movement.

A Bench comprising of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul told lawyer M. L. Sharma, who had filed the petition, that it will come up for hearing in the regular course.

Apart from registration of FIRs, the petition also seeks a direction to the National Commission for Women (NCW) to give security and assistance to women who have come out in the open with their allegations.
