18 as the consensual age for sex has also led to “over-criminalisation of consensual sex” “When the law was being amended women’s right groups had asked to lower the age to 16 which was not done So young people having consensual sex or experimenting with sex are left vulnerable to prosecution” says lawyer Vrinda Grover A man is particularly vulnerable He can be tried for sexual assault under the stringent provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) as well as additional charges of kidnapping and wrongful confinement if he elopes with a girl below 18 years of age But sometimes judges prefer spirit over letter in such cases For example Additional Sessions Judge Dharmesh Sharma acquitted a 19-year-old husband on charges of raping his minor 16-year-old wife saying “Whether this ‘zalim society’ agrees or not for all practical purposes they are married” The couple had married in a temple in Delhi before running away to the boy’s village in Bihar The girl’s family filed an FIR and the boy got arrested in June 2013 and put in jail for about two months The girl was found to be pregnant During the trial she told the judge that she had willingly married the boy The courts though rarely pursue follow-up action on perjury thanks to an overload of pending cases and the need for speedy disposals “In most cases where witnesses turn hostile the parties enter into marriage or arrive at a settlement during the trial What steps can you take then” asks A T Ansari a prosecutor at a fast track court However in exceptional cases where it was found that the woman had pressed charges to extort money action has been taken In July 2013 the Delhi Police arrested a woman who had lodged 14 cases of rape and sexual harassment against several men One of the men had registered a complaint against her alleging that the woman had borrowed money from him and had pressed charges of sexual assault when he asked her to return the amount The woman was arrested after investigations revealed that she had been involved in four such cases of cheating and extortion The woman is currently in judicial custody However the new rape law and the public anger after the December 16 gangrape have made it almost impossible for the police to intervene in rape cases which strongly appear to be false or to initiate a settlement “Rightly or wrongly the police does not have that space any more Any complaint that comes is straightaway registered and the matter handed to NGOs and courts after investigation so you have more reporting of sexual offences and a higher number of false cases” says Yogesh Kumar a co-ordinator at Pratidhi an NGO working with victims of sexual assault A magistrate at the city’s Mahila Court says that she faces scores of such false cases every day “Most of these cases are between neighbours boss-employee landlord-tenant More often than not personal grievances are painted as sexual offences In such cases we give bail to the man” she says Legal experts suggest better drafting of laws greater sensitisation of police stricter judiciary and a vigilant prosecution to resolve the issue of false rape cases Retired Justice Usha Mehra says that she had included all these suggestions in a 160-page report submitted to the government for improving the status of women’s security in the capital after the December 16 gangrape A year later she adds “Not one of the suggestions has been implemented” Recognising the “mental harassment and physical torture” a man accused in a false rape case has to go through Additional Sessions Judge Virender Bhat in January 2014 suggested that in such cases either the State or the woman compensate the man The suggestions were made while acquitting a man who had been accused of raping his former landlady The woman admitted in court that she had an affair with the man and had pressed rape charges after her husband learnt of the affair “In cases where the court comes to the conclusion that the accused had been implicated on totally false and baseless charges the accused in fact is the victim” Judge Bhat observed Ajay* meanwhile continues to take leave from work every time he has to attend the court
