Sexual harassment charge will not stand if the woman is wearing a 'sexually provocative' dress, a Kerala court observed on Wednesday. The controversial remarks were made during an anticipatory bail hearing in a sexual harassment case against a writer and social activist. Kozhikode court observed that IPC 354A (sexual harassment) would "prima facie not be attracted when woman was wearing a sexually provocative dress."
