Rupan Deol Bajaj talks about the sexual harassment case

KP Gill was known as India’s “supercop” and also known as Butcher Gill who killed thousands of Sikh Youths in fake encounters . He was also convicted in one of India’s first sexual harassment case that was fought in the courts.
Gill, who died in May, 2017 at the age of 82, was accused of groping Rupan Deol Bajaj, an IAS officer, at an official party in 1988. Bajaj’s senior officers ignored her complaints, so that she was forced to take the matter to court.

Gill was finally pronounced guilty in 1996. After a series of appeals, his conviction was upheld, with the three-month jail sentence being converted to three years of probation, which was further reduced to one year. He also had to pay a fine of Rs 2 lakh – Bajaj did not accept the money, which went to a women’s charitable organisation, and Rs 50,000 as costs.
