Satish v. State of Maharashtra (Bombay HC POCSO Sexual Assault Case)

Does the absence of physical contact really not amount to sexual assault?

By: Umang Malik, First Year, Faculty of Law, Delhi University

In the recent controversial case of “Satish vs. State Of Maharashtra”, a single judge bench couldn’t find “physical contact” with sexual intent in an incident a girl child, aged 12 years was groped by the accused who further went to the point of undressing her.


– The girl child, under the pretext of being given fruits, was taken by the accused to his house.

– The mother of the girl, who was not at home when this was happening, returned to find her daughter missing, as a result of which, she went out looking for her.

– Her neighbor mentioned spotting the 12-year-old with the accused. On seeing the accused, the mother asked about the whereabouts of her daughter. He straight away denied having any information about the same.

– On reaching the house of the accused, she found his door latched from the outside and her daughter inside, crying.

– The daughter immediately told her mother that on the pretext of giving guavas to her, the appellant brought her to his house, pressed her breast and tried to undress her. When she resisted and shouted, he locked her inside.

– The neighbour also attested to having heard the girl cry out for help.[1]


Whether the act of the accused amounted to sexual assault under Section 7 of the POCSO Act?

Does groping the breast and attempt to remove the salwar of a girl child without her consent amount to sexual assault, apart from outraging modesty of a woman?


The learned judge of the Bombay HC said there could not be a sexual assault without actual skin to skin contact, unless the hand was inserted inside the clothing or the clothes were removed for the act of groping. He further went on to say that the acts of the accused did amount to outraging the modesty of a woman but not to sexual assault, as it was essential under Section 7 of POCSO for there to be physical contact with sexual intent, which in the current case, was missing.

Legal Perspective:

Supreme Court:

The Supreme Court on 27th January 2021 has stayed the judgment of the skin-to-skin contact without disrobing. Also the Attorney General of India has expressed his views as the judgment is “likely to set a dangerous precedent” while also condemning the publishing of the victim’s name.

To get a better understanding of the legal perspective, it is essential to look at the definition of sexual assault and precedents regarding the same.

Section 7,

Whoever, with sexual intent touches the vagina, penis, anus or breast of the child or makes the child touch the vagina, penis, anus or breast of such person or any other person, or does any other act with sexual intent which involves physical contact without penetration is said to commit sexual assault”.[2]

The definition is very clear about the action and also gives a wider scope under ‘any other act’.

Section 351 of the IPC defines assault as the apprehension of use of criminal force. Here the learned judge has completed looked out of the window for the interpretation of “physical contact” only meaning to skin to skin contact.

In Satranjan vs State Of Uttarakhand[3], the victim was taken away by the accused by gagging her while she was on her way to school. The accused molested the girl and there was no sign of sexual intercourse. The injury was the cut on her lips and the accused was held liable under Section 8 of POCSO act.

Sathish Kumar vs. State Rep[4]., in a similar case the Madras HC, where the girl was forcibly taken into the bushes and pinned down the girl, the accused laid on her and pressed her breast. The victim screamed and the mother came to her rescue. The accused was held liable u/s 7 of POCSO and 354 of IPC.

In the recent case of “Hathras”, the ADG had the audacity to discourage the dying declaration of the victim in front of the media.

In the “Badaun case of 2021”, the deceased was gang-raped and murdered and the police officials took 18 hours to take the dead body to the mortuary[5]. SHO of Ughaiti police station was suspended for “delay in informing higher authorities, laxity in taking action, dereliction of duty, and failure in taking speedy action.[6]


Throughout our life we have been taught that any inappropriate touching, without the consent is termed in an innocent way as “bad touch”.

  • The right word for such inappropriate touching can only be justified by the quantum of the act and the area of the body.

It is worrying and alarming as to the how the judiciary is interpreting “Physical contact with sexual intent”.

What a wrong precedent can do will not be seen until you look at the larger picture and providing an excuse to the like-minded.

It all comes down to the patriarchy in the society which tends to keep bringing regression in the society. It is often has been majorly seen in India that people have denied acknowledging a rape too. Either it is politicians, police, or the men of our society and now the judiciary.

What is the use of such laws when the court rejects the existence of such crimes?

Women in India are in constant fear of being sexually attacked by a person and in order to make them feel safe and to limit such attacks on women, this is certainly not helpful.

The Uttar Pradesh Temporary Exemption from Certain Labor Laws Ordinance, 2020

The Uttar Pradesh government, on May 8, 202O, cleared an ordinance that exempts its factories and industries from all labor laws. Could a boon to industrialists and factory owners possibly be a curse to the laborers?  The article focuses on the conditions and impact of such an ordinance on the factory owners and the laborers they employ.

By: Maulika Memane, 3rd Year Student, ILS Law College.

Labor laws 

It is needless to say that industrial progress is fundamental to the growth of any nation. The growth of industries in a country determines the overall development of a nation. That being said, it is also important that there be continuous production and to ensure that matters such as disputes and safety concerns do not hamper the growth of an industry and that the rights and welfare of individuals working in such industries are given equal importance. Labor laws ensure exactly this.

Labor laws are an assortment of laws, administrative rulings, and precedents that address the legal rights of the people working in an organization and the organization itself.

Labor laws attempt to intervene in numerous parts of the relationship between an employer and the employees. It seeks to define the obligations between both these parties. As far as labor law regulations in India are concerned, it is important to shine a light on the major acts regulating the labor laws in India which are- Industrial Labor Act, 1947, Contract Labor Act, 1970, Minimum Wages Act, 1948, and Factories Act, 1948. 

According to Article 246 which talks about issues related to labor and labor welfare, these matters fall under List- III which is the concurrent list. In simple terms, it means that both the central as well as the state government can make laws regulating labor.

Due to this, there are currently 47 central laws and 200 state laws concerning the matters of labor and industries. 

The state legislature may exercise its right to regulate labor laws by either amending central law according to the feasibility and requirement of its state or by enacting its law regulating labor. In times when the state law does not adhere to the central laws, the state laws can be implemented after it receives the approval of the President.  

Terms and conditions of the ordinance 

On May 8, 2020, the Uttar Pradesh cabinet cleared an ordinance, the “Uttar Pradesh Temporary Exemption from Certain Labor Laws Ordinance, 2020″ which exempts all factories and other manufacturing establishments from the application of certain labor laws for three years.

This ordinance was promulgated by the governor of the state on the belief that such an ordinance would increase investment and provide the necessary boost to industries in hard times brought about due to the CO-VID 19 pandemic.

The ordinance also clearly states that even though the state legislature is not in session, the Governor is satisfied that such circumstances exist which make it necessary for him to take immediate action. The ordinance goes on to define the meaning of necessary terms such as factory, minimum wage, wages, and workers. Chapter two of the ordinance, however, talks about the conditions required for such an exemption by all factories and establishments engaged in manufacturing

So what are the conditions required?

Wages: The ordinance prohibits employers from paying less than the minimum wage prescribed by the UP government. The ordinance also states that employers are required to make payments to their employees within the time limit that has been prescribed under the sections of Payment Of Wages Act, 1936. The act states that “any establishment, in which less than one thousand persons are employed, shall be paid before the expiry of the seventh day after the last day of the wage period. In case of all other establishments, the employer shall pay its employees before the expiry of the tenth day, after the last day of the wage period in respect of which the wages are payable.” Lastly, the ordinance states that all payments must be made only to the bank accounts of the workers.

Safety and health of workers: The ordinance states that provisions of the Factories Act, 1948, and the Building and Other Construction Workers (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) Act, 1996 relating to the safety and security of workers shall remain applicable.

Working hours: According to the ordinance, the workers cannot be required or be permitted to work for more than eleven hours a day. It also requires that the spread over of the work should not be more than twelve hours in a day.

Compensation Act: The ordinance requires establishments to provide compensation to employees for any death or disability due to an accident occurring because of and in the course of employment under the Employees Compensation Act of 1923. The act states that compensation should be made as follows:

1) Where death results from the injury: An amount equal to fifty percent. of the monthly wages of the deceased [employee] multiplied by the relevant factor; or an amount of one lakh and twenty thousand rupees, whichever is more;

2) Where permanent total disablement results from the injury: An amount equal to sixty percent. of the monthly wages of the injured [employee] multiplied by the relevant factor or one lakh and twenty thousand rupees, whichever is more be payable to the employee.

 The relevant factor mentioned being the complete age of the worker as per his last birthday. The act also lays down provisions in case of temporary disablement as well as the employer’s liability in case of non-payment of compensation.

Provisions relating to women and children: All provisions of labor law relating to women and children shall remain applicable to establishments according to the acts such as the Maternity Act, Equal Remuneration Act, and Child Labor Act.

Bonded Labor Act: All the provisions under the Bonded Labor Act which was introduced to abolish bonded labor and prevent economic and physical exploitation of weaker sections of the society and all matters concerning that are also to remain applicable to all establishments. 

Critical analysis 

The government of Uttar Pradesh issued a statement that stated that due to the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economic and industrial activities, the workers’ welfare has also been affected. In an attempt to revive economic activities and bring them back on track by creating new investment opportunities and boosting old industrial, it has proposed such an ordinance.  The ordinance, which even though, has not received the required approvals to be made into law has received a considerable amount of criticism.

The ordinance has been accused of focusing merely on the growth of industries but considerably overlooking the welfare and rights of its workers.

Many provisions relating to the workers’ rights of the already existing acts have been rendered completely inapplicable due to the ordinance which exempts both old and new units of industries from previous provisions.

What is being considered a victory by factory owners and industrialists, may not have the same effect on laborers, who in uncertain times that this pandemic has brought about, are being subjected to face more uncertainty in terms of employment. The ordinance hands more power to owners of factories and industries with regards to hiring and termination of employment while attracting minimum corrective measures from the labor department.  Since the ordinance nullifies such provisions as related to settling disputes, trade unions, contract workers, and migrant workers, one can argue that it may lead to the ill-treatment of workers. The government must consider the negative impact such an ordinance could have on poor workers who have already been hit hard by the lockdown and what it would mean for their employment status and working conditions.

Other states which have amended laws 

Uttar Pradesh is not the only state to promulgate ordinances exempting laws related to labor due to the economic downfall during the pandemic, but Madhya Pradesh as well the state of Gujarat have also issued similar ordinances. The Gujarat ordinance, however, is limited to only new units that are being established. The ordinance issued by the Madhya Pradesh government provides an exemption from state laws under the Madhya Pradesh Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act, 1961, and the Madhya Pradesh Shram Kalyan Nidhi Adhiniyam, 1982 and exemption from certain provisions of the Industrial Dispute Act of 1947 to all new factories. 


The Uttar Pradesh Temporary Exemption from Certain Labor Laws ordinance, 2020 is yet to receive the assent of the president as it restricts the application of central laws. The passing of such ordinances has also resulted in states extending working hours of laborers such as in states of Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Assam, and Odisha that have increased working hours to 12 hours a day for three months. It is however important to keep in mind that labor laws fall under the concurrent list that provides joint jurisdiction and needs to be approved at a federal level. The labor ministry is examining whether the ordinances impact the conventions of the International Labor Organization. The ILO, in return, has expressed concerns over the moves of free labor law in the states and has issued an appeal to the Prime Minister regarding the same.

Four Labour Codes

The article deals with a view to reform the archaic labour laws and to facilitate the ease of doing business in India, the Government of India had decided to consolidate twenty-nine (29) central labour laws into four (4) labour codes.

By: Shefali Jha, 2nd Year, B.A.LL. B, New Law College, Pune.


On 23rd September 2020, the Rajya Sabha passed three labour codes which is, The Industrial Relations Code, The Social Security Code and the Occupational Safety, Health and Working Conditions Code. The central government proposes to replace 25 existing labour laws with four codes. The goal is to rearrange and modernise labour regulation. The major challenge in labour reforms is to encourage employment growth while protecting worker’s rights.

The Occupational Safety, Health And Working Conditions Code, 2020

It has defined between-state migrant workers as the worker who has gone ahead on his own from one state & acquired work in another state, earning up to Rs 18,000/month. 

The proposed definition makes a distinction from the present definition of just authoritative work.

It will merge and amend the laws managing the work-related safety, wellbeing and working conditions of persons employed in an establishment and related matters.

The government has, under the code, permitted single licence for staffing firms to hire workers on contract across various locations rather than multiple licences needed earlier.

It has expanded the threshold limit of contractor employees from 20 to 50 under OSH Code.

The Code on Social Security, 2020

It means to accommodate for universal social security to all workers, including the unorganised and the gig and platform workers.

These together record for over 90% of India’s total workforce estimated at 50 crores. 

It proposes a National Social Security Board which will be prescribed to the central government for figuring suitable schemes for various sections of unorganised workers, gig workers and platform workers.

Also, aggregators employing gig workers should contribute 1-2 per cent of their annual turnover for social security.

The Industrial Relations Code, 2020

It tries to consolidate and revise laws identifying with Trade associations, states of work in modern foundations or undertaking, examination and settlement of mechanical questions. 

The legislature has raised the cut-off on number of representatives required in an association 

For preservation and conclusion of foundations without government endorsement to 300 from 100, essentially improving the straightforwardness of firing for representatives. 

For instance, the IR code suggests that no individual utilized in a mechanical foundation will go on strike without a 60-day notice, And during the pendency of procedures before a council or a National Industrial Tribunal and sixty days after the completion of such procedures. 

Hence, extending the lawfully allowable time before the labourers can go on a legitimate strike, making a lawful strike well-near inconceivable. 

Starting at now, an individual utilized in a public utility help can’t picket except if he withdraws from a strike inside about a month and a half before protesting or inside 14 days of giving such notification, which the IR Code as of now proposes to apply for all the modern foundations. 

In reality, these work codes set up by law acknowledgment of an influx of piecemeal endeavor by which state governments have been working on key work laws under the position conceded to them in the simultaneous rundown inside which work falls. Intermittent changes to the Industrial Disputes Act, Factories Act, Industrial Employment Act, and so on by a few states, just as various leader orders passed at the state and focal level in the proposal to draw in unfamiliar and homegrown speculation, are notable. 

Clearly, most of the changes have zeroed in on presenting self-insistence of businesses’ consistency with work laws in little and miniature modern foundations, and the exception of these foundations from the ambit of pivotal work laws. In 2014, the Labor Laws (Exemption from Furnishing Returns and Maintaining Registers by Certain Establishments) Act was revised to change the importance of “little” foundations to cover units utilizing a bigger number of workers than the principal piece of enactment. Presently, with the Central Acts being changed and supplanted by the new work codes, the security offered by the law to laborers of bigger foundations stand eliminated. 

In certified terms, the fundamental push of the new work codes is the speculation of a perspective of work capital relations, which relies upon diminished state intercession or liberation, and its conclusion, bipartite mechanical relations. 

Nonetheless, with reformist governments consistently pulling out from guideline of contemporaneous mechanical relations, the region of the work environment is looked to be decreased to a private space in which bosses will yield improved capacity to singularly fix the compensation, remove extra time, oversee leaves, decide remuneration, recruit and fire, and so on Once inside the workplace, work will be under the sweeping authority of businesses. Given that work, the review has moved towards the self-affirmation system and outsider examination by the business, the private intensity of managers is even more expected to develop with the implementation of the work codes. Starting now and into the foreseeable future, state intercession will be restricted to the utilization of the criminal law system to check work distress; a pattern which is now rising. 

The quick result of liberation is the speculation of the exceptionally abusive worldview of work relations run of the mill of the casual area. In the casual area where a piece of lion’s share of common people is laboring in labor-concentrated, lower-section occupations, the nonattendance of the state has sustained the state of semi authoritative forces of bosses over the work contract. Presently, obviously, such improved private intensity of managers as for the work agreement will be the norm over a huge portion of the formal sector as well.


Introduction of the labour codes to streamline the various labour laws is a very good initiative. The Codes clearly characterize the rights and liabilities of employers and employees and lay down proper dispute resolution mechanisms. The Social Security Code has taken a creative step by including aggregators within its ambit.

The Codes will certainly help coordinate the labour laws, it experiences some conflicts, inconsistencies and loopholes, which should be accommodated before its enforcement to prevent future legal conflicts.

Industrial Relations Code, 2020

On September 28, 2020, three new work law codes specifically, the Industrial Relations Code, 2020, the Occupational Safety, Health and Working Conditions Code, 2020, and the Code on Social Security, 2020 (“Codes”) got the President’s assent. The Government of India is yet to educate the feasible date regarding the Codes. Further, the standards concerning the Codes are yet to be dispersed. The Codes alongside the Code on Wages, 2019 that was passed by the Parliament a year prior, structure some part of the Government’s work change plan in India.

Further, the Central Government may by notice, involve at any rate one National Industrial Tribunals for the settling of current discussions which, in the evaluation of the Central Government, incorporate requests of public importance or are of such a nature that mechanical establishments organized in more than one State are presumably going to be enthusiastic about, or impacted by, such debates. The National Industrial Tribunal will moreover include two people to be named by the Central Government. 

Disallowance on Strikes and Lock-Outs 

No worker can go on a strike without pulling out to the business inside a period of sixty days preceding striking; or inside fourteen days of giving such notice; or before the expiry of the date of the strike showed in such notice, or during the pendency of mollification methods; or seven days after the completion of pacification systems; or during the pendency of intercession strategies; or sixty days after the completion of intervention techniques; or during any period wherein a settlement or award is in action in respect of any issues covered by the settlement or grant. Likewise, no business of a mechanical establishment would dart out any of his/her workers aside from if the conditions referred to above are met. While the ID Act contained relative game plans as per prior warning of strike and lock-out, in any case, such courses of action were essentially relevant to public utility organizations. 

Lay-off, Retrenchment, and Closure 

Under the ID Act, present-day establishments with more than a hundred workers used were expected to secure before approval from the fitting Government to lay-off/monitor workers similarly as in occurrences of determination of a mechanical undertaking. The IR Code has conceded off this need for current establishments, for instance, mines, modern offices, and estates using in any event 300 experts or such higher number as may be told by the Government. Regardless, it isn’t critical to get prior approval in cases wherein such lay-off is a direct result of a lack.
