Supreme Court dismisses charges against actress Khusboo

New Delhi, (ANI): The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed all cases registered against South Indian film actress and activist Khusboo for her alleged remarks on pre-marital sex.

The apex court quashed all 22 cases registered against her.

Khusboo described the judgement as a major relief for her.

"I am relieved and relaxed after hearing the verdict," said Khusboo.

"I believe in my words, and the verdict has reaffirmed my belief," she added.

The Tamil actress had given an interview in 2005 mentioning that men cannot expect their brides to be virgins and also suggested that girls should take protective measures before engaging in pre-marital sex.

The actress was accused of defaming Tamil womanhood and chastity.

She moved the Madras High Court to quash the criminal complaints against her.

The court, however, rejected her plea, but directed that all the 22 complaints against Khushboo be transferred to the chief metropolitan magistrate in Chennai to facilitate speedy disposal.

In 2008, Khushboo had appealed against the High Court's order in the Supreme Court.
