Lately, several stories have surfaced where the live-in relationships have turned sour and female partners have accused the male partner of rape and molestation and often in such cases, the men have been sent to jail.




Only a few lucky ones get rid of such accusations.
One such case came on Sunday, when the Delhi High Court acquitted a man who was sentenced for 10 years by a trial court for raping a woman in 2011 after the court found many ‘serious infirmities’ in the details given by the victim who was in a live-in relation with the accused.
The High Court superseded the order given  by the trial court in 2013 in which it had convicted the man for alleged rape under section 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC and sentenced him to the jail of 10 years along with a fine of Rs 15000..

“From the above documents (referred in the judgement), which have not been considered in right perspective by the trial court, it is clear that the prosecutrix (woman), who had been living alone away from her husband in Delhi, was in live-in relationship with the appellant (man),” Justice Pratibha Rani said in her judgement.
After the court allowed the man to file an appeal against the decision of the trial court, the court said that  “deliberate improvements” were made by the woman on material points related to the case and her testimony does not inspire confidence.
As per the FIR, the alleged incident took place on the night of January 13-14, 2011 when the victim was alone at her house and was mourning the death of her daughter who had expired a few days back. She claimed in FIR that the door of her house was open and the accused entered her room and raped her.

The accused had denied the allegations levelled against him and during arguments his counsel kept saying that the woman was in a live-in relationship with his client.

The lawyer argued that prior to the incident, the woman had borrowed Rs. 11,000 from the man and after he insisted on repayment, she falsely implicated him in the case.
Though police while opposing the appeal argued that the man had committed the crime when the woman was alone at her house. But the court taking cognizance of the repeated changes in the woman’s version denied argument of the police and noted that the accused was well known to the woman.
“She admitted having received Rs 11,000 on October 31, 2010 i.e. much prior to the alleged rape incident on the night intervening January 13-14, 2011. Thus, her statement that this amount was paid to her for changing her statement is falsified from the record,” the court said.
