“A Girl, Lady Of 23 Years Is Good Enough To Decide Right Or Wrong”: Delhi HC Grants Bail To Man Accused Of Rape, Making Obscene Video

“Three years prior to the year 2019, prosecutrix might have been 23 years of age and in the opinion of this Court, at the age of 23 years, a girl/lady is good enough to decide what is right or wrong” observed the Delhi High Court while granting bail to a man accused of rape and making obscene video and thereafter threatening the girl to make the video public. A single judge bench comprising of Justice Suresh Kumar Kait observed thus: “Pertinently, the FIR in question has been registered in the year 2019 and the age of prosecutrix has been mentioned as 26 years. A cursory perusal of FIR shows that prosecutrix had visited Mohali in the year 2016 and instead of attending her coaching classes, she used to roam around with petitioner in malls, PVR and showrooms etc. However, she has pleaded ignorance about how petitioner made her obscene video and allegedly blackmailed her to forcefully make physical relations with him. Three years prior to the year 2019, prosecutrix might have been 23 years of age and in the opinion of this Court, at the age of 23 years, a girl/lady is good enough to decide what is right or wrong.”
