Judgments on Rape

Saturday, January 29, 2011
Rape

Rape — The absence of injuries on the person of the prosecutrix is not sufficient to discredit her evidence.

Rape

Rape — Testimony of a prosecutrix — Held, in a case of rape, testimony of a prosecutrix stands at par with that of an injured witness — It is really not necessary to insist for corroboration if the evidence of the prosecutrix inspires confidence and appears to be credible.  

 
Rape

Rape — It is a matter of common law that in Indian society any girl or woman would not make such allegations against a person as she is fully aware of the repercussions flowing therefrom — If she is found to be false, she would be looked by the society with contempt throughout her life — For an unmarried girl, it will be difficult to find a suitable groom — Therefore, unless an offence has really been committed, a girl or a woman would be extremely reluctant even to admit that any such incident had taken place which is likely to reflect on her chastity — She would also be conscious of the danger of being ostracized by the society — It would indeed be difficult for her to survive in Indian society which is, of course, not as forward looking as the western countries are.
