The same words can be seen as an innocent comment or an indecent one depending on the associated factors like the tone, facial expression, body language and the previous experience. To publicly use the term 'voluptuous' for a family member is definitely an objectionable comment.

This question is seen by me only today, hence a reply is sent, though belatedly.

The PoSH Act defines sexual harassment to include unwelcome acts such as physical contact and sexual advances, a demand or request for sexual favours, making sexually coloured remarks, showing pornography, and any other unwelcome physical, verbal, or non-verbal conduct of a sexual nature.

As the word "voluptuous", uttered by a superior to his subordinate female employee, comes within the purview of "sexually coloured remarks", the complaint filed by the woman employee, holds good.
