New Delhi, Jan 9 — All pending cases of sexual harassment of women in the Delhi High Court will be heard on a "priority basis".

This follows a directive from high court Chief Justice D. Murugesan.

A circular issued by him said: "Chief Justice has desired that considering the large pendency of cases related to sexual harassment (of) women, priority will be given to such cases.

"It has been directed that all such cases will be segregated ... and listed before the courts on priority basis," it read.

The move follows the gang-rape of a young woman in Delhi who died in Singapore after 13 days.
