Court acquits rape accused after he marries victim

New Delhi, Dec 11 (IANS) A court here has acquitted a man, accused of raping a woman on the false pretext of marriage, observing that he has finally fulfilled the promise by marrying her.

Additional Sessions Judge Virender Bhat acquitted Ram Krishana, facing trial for the offence dealing with rape and criminal intimidation, court sources said on Friday.

According to the prosecution, a complaint was registered against Krishana in November 2014 in west Delhi’s Najafgarh police station, where the victim alleged that the accused trapped her in his love and established a physical relationship with her on the false pretext of marriage. He, however, later refused to marry her.

During the recording of her statement as a prosecution witness in the case, the woman denied that the accused committed intercourse against her consent.

She further deposed that she got married to the accused on December 1, 2014 and is living happily with him and has no complaints against him.

“Even if it be taken that accused was having physical relations with the prosecutrix (victim) on the promise of marriage, it is evident that he has fulfilled his promise by marrying her,” the court said in its order delivered on Wednesday.

“There is nothing in the testimony of prosecutrix (victim) to show that his promise was false,” it added.
