More prominent cases of false rape charges, showing the seamy underside of modern female supremacism:
Digambar Gaikwad woke up one fine day nearly a decade ago, faced with a complaint of molestation against him filed by one of his colleagues, who was vying for the same plum job as him — that is the post of a coordinator of a World Bank project. It took over five years of legal battle to see the case to its logical end, scaling right up to the country’s apex court.
Not stopping at that, Gaikwad, who was a deputy director with the state agriculture department, Shivajinagar, at the time, sought compensation from the lady and has now been awarded Rs 10 lakh as damages.”
[Lila: In my opinion, for false rape charges, the perpetrator should be jailed for a length of time equal to the time the victim would have faced if he had been convicted of rape.]
Rajnandini and Neha used to lure young men into a honey trap and threaten them with implication in false rape cases to extort money from them.
One such case came to light on January 4, when veterinary doctor Krishan Kumar of Kutel village told the police that he was trapped by Neha. The gang threatened him to pay Rs 25 lakh, failing which he would be framed in a rape case.”
The special judge took a serious view of the girl giving false evidence in court and ordered the proceedings to give out a strong message against misuse of the stringent Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO).
In August 2013, the girl, who was then 16-years-old, had in a complaint to the police alleged that while she was sleeping with her parents her father touched her inappropriately and even raped her on several occasions, said the prosecutor.
Her father, a daily wage worker, was booked under POCSO and arrested by the Navi Mumbai police in April 2014.
During her deposition in court, the girl confessed that she had filed a false complaint against her father after a tiff with him.”
