Humiliated in Gujarat court, says UK Woman

A young British woman allegedly molested by a plumber last month has complained to the Gujarat High Court Chief Justice about the “humiliation” she had to undergo in the open court during hearing of the case.

Kaya Enrich (23), who is here to attend a three-month internship programme with a city-based NGO, made the complaint in a letter to Chief Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan on Tuesday, a day after she was asked embarrassing questions at a metropolitan court.

In the letter, she alleged Sanjay Prajapati, lawyer representing the plumber, humiliated her by asking whether she smoked or consumed alcohol, her lawyer Meena Jagtap said.

Enrich further claimed that Prajapati, during the hearing in the court of magistrate, had asked her questions in Gujarati which she could not comprehend and that she was not provided with a translator.

She had earlier filed an FIR alleging plumber Pragnesh Chhatrada molested her on August 24 when he had come to her residence for shower repair. Chhatrada was then arrested.
