Chinmayanad Case: SC Orders Transfer Of Law Student, Her Brother To Another Law College [Read Order]

The Supreme Court today i.e., September 4, 2019, ordered transfer of Shahjanpur LLM student, who alleged harassment by former Union Minister and BJP leader Swami Chinmayanad, and her brother to other colleges affiliated to Bareily University, stating, “for us their future is important”.

The Bench of Justices R. Banumathi and A.S. Bopanna while passing the order requested the Bar Council of India (BCI) to increase seats in the concerned colleges to accommodate the woman and her brother in the LLM and LLB courses respectively, PTI reported.

The apex court said that the student and her parents are at liberty to go home and asked the Delhi Police to provide adequate security to her and her family.

The direction came after the Uttar Pradesh government told the Supreme Court that it had already made all the necessary arrangements for transfer of the woman and her brother to other colleges with hostel facility in compliance with it’s earlier order.

On the directions of the Supreme Court, the state government has constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe charges raised by the law student, who had gone missing after uploading a video on Facebook in which she accused Chinmayanad of harassing and destroying lives of many girls in her college. She was subsequently found in Rajasthan.

Denying all the allegations, Chinmayanad had said that, “I have full faith in the judiciary, I will say whatever I have to say before SIT.”
