The Justice J S Verma committee appointed by the government to suggest changes to laws dealing with sexual crimes will submit its report on Wednesday. The report, running into two volumes, will be submitted to the Ministry of Home Affairs, which will take up the contents for consideration.
The three-member committee met around 160 experts ranging from historians, women rights activists and representatives from the legal fraternity during a two-day public hearing last week. Sexual assault on women by armed forces in the Northeast and in the Kashmir valley were some of the issues discussed at the public hearing. The panel has so far received more than 70,000 suggestions from across the country. It had been asked by the government to prepare the report within a month.
The committee is headed by Verma, a former CJI, with the other two members being chief justice of Himachal Pradesh Leila Seth and former Solicitor General of India Gopal Subramaniam.
