    The Telangana High Court is set to hear an appeal by a Tehsildar for the removal of negative statements in the Disha case. The appeal was filed after a lower court rejected the Tehsildar’s plea to remove certain statements made by the police in the charge sheet filed in the Disha case.

    The Disha case refers to the brutal rape and murder of a veterinarian in Hyderabad in November 2019. The case had sparked widespread outrage and led to calls for stricter laws to protect women.

    The Tehsildar, who was named in the charge sheet as a witness, had objected to certain statements made by the police in the charge sheet. The statements allegedly portrayed him in a negative light and could harm his reputation.

    The lower court had rejected the Tehsildar’s plea, stating that the statements were part of the charge sheet and could not be removed. The court had also noted that the statements did not directly implicate the Tehsildar in the crime.

    The Tehsildar has now approached the Telangana High Court, seeking the removal of the statements. The High Court is expected to hear the appeal soon.

    The case highlights the importance of protecting the reputations of individuals who are named as witnesses in criminal cases. While it is important to ensure that justice is served and perpetrators are brought to book, it is equally important to ensure that innocent individuals are not falsely implicated or their reputations tarnished.
