Take action against girl for filing false rape case: HC to cops

Express news service : New Delhi, Mon Apr 02 2012, 02:43 hrs
A court asked the Delhi Police to take action against a woman who falsely accused a policeman of raping her because she was upset with him.

Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Atul Kumar Garg acquitted Muzaffarnagar resident Subhash Chander Chaudhary, working as a constable with the Delhi Police, against whom the complainant had lodged a false rape case last year.

“A copy of this judgment is sent to the DCP (South) with direction to take appropriate action against the complainant (girl) who had put the state machinery against the accused knowing very well that she was filing a false complaint,” the order read.

The court let off the accused after the girl, in her deposition during the trial, admitted that she had given a false complaint to the police against Chaudhary as she was angry with him.

The girl had in May last year given a complaint to an Assistant Commissioner of Police alleging the policeman married her in 2007 despite already being married and having two children in his village.

She alleged Chaudhary posed as unmarried and forced her to marry him and he raped her continuously.

She also alleged that Chaudhary was also involved in human trafficking and had stolen two vehicles from Arunachal Pradesh which he sold here.

After a probe into the case, the police filed a chargesheet, indicting the constable. The court subsequently framed charges against him in February this year.

During the trial, the girl told the court that she knew Chaudhary as they were friends and due to some misunderstanding, she lodged the complaint against him.

After her testimony, the court did not examine any other witnesses saying when the girl herself had not said anything substantial against the accused, no useful purpose would be served in examining others.

“There being no incriminating evidence available on judicial record, examination of accused is dispensed with. The accused is acquitted from the offence punishable under Section 376 (rape) of the IPC,” the court said.
