Observing that it is high time that we take a stand on enacting a law to protect men from false rape charges, a court here has acquitted a man of rape as the victim agreed to his plea for quashing the case.
“No one discusses about the dignity and honour of a man…all are fighting only for the rights, honour and dignity of women. Where is the law to protect a man from such a woman where he is being persecuted and implicated in false cases? Perhaps, now it is time to take a stand for a man,’’ Additional Sessions Judge Nivedita Anil Sharma said, while acquitting Pherudin alias Pheru Khan.
“The prosecutrix has filed her affidavit where she gave her no objection to the present First Information Report (FIR) being quashed, stating that the physical relations with the accused took place with her free consent and sweet will…,’’ the Judge said, quoting the victim’s affidavit.
The victim in her complaint with the Ranhola police station in West Delhi had alleged that the accused had sexually assaulted her at her house in Mohan Garden in 2013 when she was alone.
