Acquittal in rape case, Indian Navy Officer
A court in Delhi has lieutenant commander serving in the Indian Navy in a rape case, noting that the prosecutor at three different stages has given three different versions.
Judge Ankur Jain of Extraordinary Sessions, Tis Hazari court, said in a verdict last week that the benefit of the doubt should go to the accused and he is acquitted of the offense for which he is charged.
Accused counsel Ravi Drall argued that the relationship between the complainant and the defendant was consensus and that no alleged crime was committed by his client. Ravi Drall further claimed that the version of the prosecutor continues to change and improve her version at various stages, ultimately making her statements unreliable.
The court also noted several inconsistencies, saying that it appears that the present complaint was made to pressure the accused to enter into a marriage alliance, as he succumbed to the pressure at the time of processing the bail application, the accused had married with the prosecutor, which is reflected in the bail order and the photographs thus recorded. The alliance did not survive, and eventually they were both divorced, the court added.
The court also noted that it is also quite unnatural that the victim did not tell his mother anything right after the incident or even thereafter and waited for about two days until the marriage was canceled by the accused’s mother.

The court further noted that the prosecutor has given three different versions regarding the presence of her brother. In her first complaint, brother was not in the picture, despite there being a delay of about three days in filing the complaint.
According to the complainant, she became engaged to the accused in 2015 with the permission of family members and they used to talk on mobile phone regularly. According to the complainant, the accused and his family members were invited to a religious function in her uncle’s house where she was later raped by the accused and then FIR was lodged at Janakpuri police station under section 376 IPC.
Recently Hon’ble Delhi High Court has expressed worry that there is an “alarming increase” of false cases of rape being registered “only to arm-twist the accused and make them succumb to the demands of the complainant”.
दिल्ली की एक अदालत में एक बलात्कार के मामले में भारतीय नौसेना में सेवारत लेफ्टिनेंट कमांडर है, यह देखते हुए कि अभियोजक ने तीन अलग-अलग चरणों में तीन अलग-अलग संस्करण दिए हैं। तीस हजारी कोर्ट के असाधारण सत्र के न्यायाधीश अंकुर जैन ने पिछले हफ्ते एक फैसले में कहा कि संदेह का लाभ आरोपी को जाना चाहिए और उसे उस अपराध से बरी कर दिया जाता है जिसके लिए उस पर आरोप लगाया गया है। आरोपी वकील रवि द्राल ने तर्क दिया कि शिकायतकर्ता और प्रतिवादी के बीच संबंध आम सहमति से थे और उनके मुवक्किल द्वारा कोई कथित अपराध नहीं किया गया था। रवि ड्रॉल ने आगे दावा किया कि अभियोजक का संस्करण विभिन्न चरणों में अपने संस्करण को बदलना और सुधारना जारी रखता है, अंततः उसके बयानों को अविश्वसनीय बना देता है।
