THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: For many women whose concerns had been unheeded by their families, co-workers or even the police, the Mega Adalat held by Kerala State Women’s Commission on Wednesday came as a relief. Many of the complainants were women from underprivileged backgrounds, who found themselves confronting situations where the odds were against them. For instance, a 48-year old widow from Varkala approached the commission after her neighbour attempted to sexually assault her.

The man knocked on her door at night, saying that he needed biscuits, and entered and locked the house when she went inside to get them, she said. She fended off his advances by throwing chilli powder on his face, and escaped to another house nearby. Although she had complained to the police, it was of no use, as the man bribed them to not register a case, she said.

The police also failed to be of assistance to a mother-daughter duo from Perukavu, whose residential plot had been flooded by the drainage from a new house nearby. The aged mother broke down as she spoke about how they had no man at home to raise the issue with the neighbours, or any influence, financial or otherwise. However, the women’s panel could not take any immediate action in these two cases, as the other parties failed to turn up at the adalat.
