Impossible for single man to rape without scuffle: HC

Jan 29, 2021 23:03 IST

The Nagpur Bench of the Bombay High Court recently acquitted a man of rape charges, stating that it seemed “highly impossible for a single man to gag the victim and remove her and his clothes at the same time without any scuffle.” “Had it been a case of forcible intercourse, there would have been a scuffle. Medical evidence also doesn’t support the survivor’s case as no injuries from a scuffle could be seen,” Justice Pushpa Ganediwala held while hearing an appeal against the conviction of a 26-year-old man. Petitioner Suraj Kasarkar was sentenced to 10 years of rigorous imprisonment by a sessions court after being convicted for rape of the minor in March 2019. Justice Ganediwala observed that the testimonies of the girl and her mother could not prove that she was below 18 years when the offence was committed.
