Women who file false rape cases are a danger to the society as courts and public would start disbelieving the real victims, a Delhi court has said.
Additional Sessions Judge R Tewari made the remark while acquitting a woman and discharging a man in a false case of gangrape, lodged by another woman working as a district court employee. "Such alleged (fake) victims of rape are potentially dangerous to the society in the sense that from tomorrow onwards, the general public as well as the courts will start disbelieving the version given even by real rape victims," the judge said while acquitting the woman.
The court acquitted the woman of the charges of hatching a criminal conspiracy with four men to abduct and rape the complainant, stating that the stories narrated by the prosecutrix (alleged victim) could not be reconciled.
While one of the four men, accused of abducting and raping the woman, was discharged earlier, three others were declared proclaimed offenders. The court further observed that the "alleged victim" is not afraid of the consequences of falsely implicating someone in a rape case as she works in one of the district courts in Delhi.
"I have no hesitation in drawing an inference that she is a cold-blooded thinker whereby she can implicate any person, having inadvertence towards the consequences and at the same time, she has no repentance over her said false allegations," the court said.
The complainant had alleged that besides the woman, who was acquitted by the court, her husband and his friends had abducted her while she was on her way to attend computer classes.
She had alleged that she had been confined in a house at Chandigarh, and later at Haridwar for more than a month, during which she was repeatedly beaten up and raped by the three men. She had further alleged that she had been rescued by her friend Kailash, after she had somehow managed to make a call to him.
