When rape turns out consensual sex: Cops working to get falsely implicated released

The Punjab Police, beset with a number of cases of "consensual sex" being labelled as rape, have initiated proceedings to get the "accused" released from the jails.

The latest case involves a woman who had alleged that her fiance, a Ludhiana-based doctor, raped her after the duo got engaged in May last year.

Police Commissioner Ishwar Singh said that investigations revealed that the woman had stayed with the doctor in a Ludhiana hotel on three separate dates with mutual

consent and thus the doctor has been absolved of rape charge and has now been booked for cheating under section 417 IPC.

"The girl got engaged to the doctor on May 22, 2012 and on October 10 this year the duo came to Ludhiana for some academic work and stayed overnight in a hotel. They again stayed in the same hotel on October 25 and November 29.

The duo stayed in the hotel with mutual consent and both had also submitted their identity proofs as well at the reception. So, it shows that it was not a rape. However, the boy later denied to marry the girl, so it turns into a case of cheating," Ishwar Singh said.

The police said that the doctor, who was sent to jail on December 29, will be released in a day or two.

Separately, in Jagraon too, SSP Ashish Chaudhary said that it has been found that an 18-year-old girl had got a false rape case registered against two boys who were were sent to jail on December 30. It has been found that the girl was in a relationship with one of the boys while the other was a common friend. The girl had gone to meet her friend but was seen by the village granthi, following which she levelled rape charges against the duo.
