News Daily Digital Desk: Kissing a 14-year-old boy on the lips and touching his genitals cannot be classified as abnormal sex under Section 37 of the Indian Penal Code. The Bombay High Court granted bail to a man accused of sexual harassment. The man had been in jail for the past one year.

What exactly was the complaint? According to the FIR, the teenager’s father suddenly discovered that some money had disappeared from the cupboard. The boy later confessed to her that he had given the money to the accused. The teenager used to go to that person’s shop to recharge an online game called ‘Ola Party’. One day after going to recharge, the accused shopkeeper touched his private parts. He also kisses her on the lips.

Justice Anuja Prabhudesai said in his statement, “According to the victim’s statement and the details given in the FIR, the accused touched the victim’s genitals and kissed her on the lips.
