SEXUAL OFFENCES DUE TO ALCOHOLISM ARE ALARMING: COURT

Inside India

While sentencing a rapist who sought leniency on the ground that he was in an intoxicated condition and did not know that he was committing a crime, a Sessions court has asked the Delhi Government to re-examine its liquor policy in view of the number of sexual offences committed by those addicted to alcohol and narcotic drugs. Additional Sessions Judge Kamini Lau said: “It has to be acknowledged that there is a definite link between the consumption of alcohol particularly caffeinated alcohol (substance abuse) and rise in crime including those relating to aggressive sexual behaviour and the State cannot shy away from its responsibility. Substance abuse is becoming increasingly common in slum areas. It seems that the issue of alcohol consumption does not appear to be on the priority list of the state government and it is because of this reason manufacture, sale and consumption of alcohol remains unchecked and little has been done to ensure that the overall sale purchase and consumption goes down.
