SC restrains TN police from arresting MP

 The Supreme Court HAS restrained Tamil Nadu police from arresting expelled AIADMK's Rajya Sabha member Sasikala Pushpa on an alleged sexual harassment complaint.

 
The bench of Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud asked the Madurai bench of Madras High Court to decide on her appeal for anticipatory bail.
 
Two of Pushpa's former maids had accused her son and husband of alleged sexual harassment. 
 
They had complained that Pushpa knew about the incident but did not interfere.
