"There are no laws, policies or rules to regulate placement agencies which supply maids and servants for working in houses. It is required that some regulatory law or policy is made by the government and police so that there can be a check on placement agencies and it is made compulsory that police verification of maids and servants is done before they take up employment," the court said.
The court also directed that a copy of the judgement be sent to secretaries of Ministry of Law and Justice of the Centre and Delhi Government, chairpersons of National Commission for Women and Delhi Commission for Women and Commissioner and additional commissioner (West) of Delhi Police for information purpose.
The 19-year-old maid, who was hired through a placement agency, had alleged that she was raped by Singh in the house of his father-in-law on May 12, 2009 and was threatened by him not to disclose it to anyone.
During the trial, Singh said he was falsely implicated in the matter as a case was lodged against the maid that she had committed theft of the articles belonging to his wife.
The court acquitted Singh saying that there was no incriminating evidence against him.
