Chennai: Kerala High Court canceled the anticipatory bail granted to activist Civic Chandran, an accused in a sexual harassment case, on Monday. The Kerala HC gave the verdict after an appeal was filed by the Kerala govt challenging the bail granted to him.

The High Court also further directed Chandran to appear before the investigating officer.

On August 24, Kerala HC stayed Kozhikode Sessions Court’s order granting anticipatory bail to activist Civic Chandran. However, the Court directed to not arrest him until the court disposes of the appeal by the state govt seeking to cancel anticipatory bail to him, considering his age.

Earlier, Civic Chandran’s bail plea created a controversy after a bizarre observation of the court. A Kerala Court said that sexual harassment will not “prima facie stand if the woman is wearing a sexually provocative dress”.
