Panaji: On January 19, a verdict was passed by Justice Pushpa Ganediwala which received criticism from the public and activists. The Verdict was that there must be skin-to-skin contact with sexual intent for an act to  be considered sexual assault.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday stayed the Bombay high court judgement of acquitting a man of groping a 12 year old as there was no skin touch. “The judgement sets a dangerous precedence,” the advocate general has said.
Auda Veigas, a social activist from Goa believes the judge has erred in the decision. “Section 7 of POCSO act extends to boys as well as girls child, if the no skin touch, no assault verdict is allowed then it will set a bad precedent,” said Veigas. Auda Veigas also said that she will be writing letters to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and Prime Minister explaining them about the bad precedent.
