CJI SA Bobde said that the Supreme Court have always had the highest respect for the womanhood.

On the controversial remark, the CJI clarified that bench never asked the accused to marry the girl. "We asked him ‘Are you going to marry her’. There was complete misreporting of what we said,” the CJI stated.
