A complaint involving allegations of sexual harassment before the disciplinary committee of the Tamil Nadu Bar Council (TN Bar Council) recently turned on its head when it was found that the errant party in the matter was the complainant herself.

The complainant in the matter had challenged her dismissal from the Nagercoil Bar Association, alleging that it was based on a false complaint from the Nagercoil Bar Association president. She also alleged that the Bar Association President had outraged her modesty and sexually tortured her.
