Delhi Woman To Face Trial For Filing False Rape Case Against Her Dance Teacher
A Delhi court has ordered to initiate criminal proceedings against a woman for filing a false rape case.
Additional sessions judge Shail Jain while acquitting a man accused of rape and cheating, said it was clear from the woman’s testimony that she made a false complaint against him knowing fully well that he neither committed any offence against her nor he raped her on the false pretext of marriage.
“I am of the opinion that this is clear case of furnishing deliberate false information to the police, a public authority thereby making the police use it lawful authority to cause injury to the reputation of the accused persons,” the judge said.
The woman had filed a complaint with the police against the man alleging that he raped her repeatedly for nearly a year in 2016 on the false pretext of marriage.
However, in her testimony before the court, she said that in 2015, she had joined dance classes where the man was her teacher and they fell in love with each other and established physical relations with her consent.
Later, there was altercation between them after which she lodged the complaint against him.
Acquitting the accused the court noted that false rape charge humiliates a person and harms his reputation and a woman cannot escape criminal proceedings.
The court also hit out at the complaint for wasting is precious time. “Precious time of the court has been wasted in a false case…I deem it to be a fit case for making a court complaint against the prosecutrix… for furnishing false information to the police,” the judge noted.
