In view of the unprecedented circumstances arising from COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent need to decongest prisons, the Delhi High Court has suspended the sentence imposed on a 73-year old POCSO offender for a period of three months. (Babu Lal vs State)

As a condition for release on bail, the Court has directed the offender to appear before the Investigating Officer (IO) every Friday between 11 am and 11:30 am through video call and also ‘drop-a-pin’ on Google maps, so that the IO can verify his presence and location.
