New Delhi: With the case of molestation of a 14-year-old Haryana girl causing an uproar, Union Law Minister M. Veerappa Moily on Friday said the government decided to “fast-track” cases relating to women, including that of rape, molestation and dowry.

“At the National Consultation on Judicial Reforms held recently, the government and the judiciary decided to prioritise and classify cases related to women, children and the disabled ... classification is an important component of the programme,” Mr. Moily told PTI. Classification and prioritisation would ensure that such cases were “fast-tracked” in courts.
