QUESTION MARK ON DELHI HIGH COURT ORDER AGAINST INDIAN MAID IN U.S.
Hon'ble Delhi High Court order restraining Indian Maid (Ms. Shanti Gurung) from pursuing torture case in U.S. against an Indian Foreign Service officer(Ms. Neena) posted there and her husband Mr. Jogesh Malhotra for allegedly subjecting her to torture and withholding her wages when she was working at their official residence in that country does not seem justified. Will these legal proceedings in New Delhi (India) not add more agony to the poor lady (Ms. Gurung)? Is Government of India's approach not biased against the Mr. Gurung, Maid and in favour of Mr. Neena, IFS? Why Government of India is not raising all pleas available to it in law before the U.S. Court instead of raising them in Hon'ble Delhi High Court? Are present proceedings by the Government of India do not amount to abuse of the process of the Hon'ble Court? When Mighty and Powerful Government would learn to stand by the side of the weak and exploited? I am willing to offer my legal services, all free of costs, to Ms.Shanti Gurung, if she so desires.
