Bois Locker Room: Delhi High Court Directs Police to Complete Probe

The Delhi High Court today directed Delhi Police and Cyber Crime Cell to speedily complete probe in the ‘Bois Locker Room’ case.

The Petitioner had also prayed for providing safety to the girls and women who exposed the Bois Locker Room group. Division Bench of Justices Siddhartha Mridul and Talwant Singh, while conducting hearing through video conferencing; also directed the Central and the State Government to provide security and protection to the Complainants in the case.

In response to the petition, the Delhi Police submitted that investigation in the case commenced after an FIR was registered. Considering the same, the Court disposed of the matter; after directing Delhi Police to complete the investigation expeditiously and file its final report before the court concerned as per law.
