Judge attempts suicide (after 'alleged false allegation' of rape by 'some woman', adds bar association)

Dwarka district court judge PS Malik was hospitalised today after an alleged unsuccessful suicide attempt by overdosing on sleeping pills, after an accusation by a colleague on 20 July that he had raped her repeatedly since January 2016, reported media.

According to the above report in India Today, the Shahadra Bar Association has come out in support of Malik in a statement, calling the complaint ‘false’: “He has been admitted to Hedgewar Hospital. He was in depression due to alleged false allegation of molestation by some woman.”
