Anil's comment on The devastating psychological impacts of false allegations on men

Excellent writeup by Virag that truely depicts the plight of falsely Accused man and brings to fore the rising snowballing trend of implicating men using heavy gender biased laws. The Misuse and abuse of these Draconian laws by Women and then going scot free is destroying the delicate inter gender trust. Delhi's Dwarka special fast track court hearing RAPE cases has made recommendations to government to make provisions in Crpc to enable the court to direct either State or the prosecutrix or to compensate the persons acquitted of the false rape charges. The court has rightly initiated proceddings against the prosecutrix u/s.344 Cr.PC for giving false evidence. The relevant portion from the said order is reproduced. 20I find it expedient to proceed against the prosecutrix u/s.344 Cr.PC for giving false evidence before this court, which is being done by way of a separate order. 21. I may further note that there is a dire need for provision to be made in the Code of Criminal Procedure to enable the court to direct either State or the prosecutrix or to compensate the persons acquitted of the false rape charges. In cases, where the court comes to conclusion that the accused had been implicated on totally false and baseless charges, the accused, in fact, is the victim and deserves to be compensated for the mental harassment, humiliation and physical torture caused to him in facing arrest, imprisonment and the ordeal of criminal trial. Rape is the most hated crime in the society. Persons accused of and arrested on the charges of rape lose every bit of honour, dignity and respect in the society and they are ostracized from the community. Nobody takes note of their acquittal, after the charges levelled against them turn to be false and fabricated. Such unfortunate persons certainly need to be compensated and SC No.154/13. Page 11 of 12rehabilitated. 22. At present, I do not find any provision in the Code of Criminal Procedure or any other law in force for the time being, empowering the court to grant compensation to the accused acquitted of the false criminal charges. Hence I consider that State should either amend Section 357 of the Code of Criminal Procedure or add a fresh section in the Code empowering the courts to grant compensation to the accused in such like cases. 23. A copy of this judgment be sent to the Secretary, Department of Law, Govt. of India and the Chairman, Law Commission of India for their perusal and consideration. Announced in open (VIRENDER BHAT) Court on 08.1.2014. Addl. Sessions Judge (Special Fast Track Court) Dwarka Courts, New Delhi.
