Women not required to produce evidence

Posted by iluvshrutiverma on November 15, 2009

In keeping up with the sexist attitude of the country, the Delhi court has ruled that – Asking a girl for evidence is insulting her.

The basic principal on which the whole Indian society is based – Women never lie.

NEW DELHI: A Delhi court has said the testimony of a rape victim is “sufficient” enough to convict the accused and asking her to corroborate her

version by producing more witnesses will be insulting.
“The statement of the prosecutrix alone is sufficient and needs no corroboration. The conviction can be founded alone unless there are compelling reasons.
“In my opinion, it would be adding insult to tell a female that her story of woes would not be believed unless it is corroborated in material particulars in the case,” District and Sessions Judge P S Teji, quoting various judgements of the Supreme Court, said.
The court’s observation came while awarding rigorous life imprisonment to convict Raju, a resident of east Delhi for raping his five-year-old neighbour.
It trashed the plea of convict that he was implicated by the girl and her family members as no independent witness was examined against him by the prosecution.
“In the traditional non-permissive bounds of India, no girl or woman would falsely implicate somebody for ravishing her chastity by sacrificing and jeopardising her future prospects,” it said, lending credence to testimonies of the victim and her parents.
It also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on convict, who raped the minor on the night of May 31, 2006 after taking her to a secluded place.

Women can never lie

Indian women are great. Only Indian men are bad. Here The Honorable Supreme Court is saying that a woman’s saying is itself an evidence enough to punish a man. India is great.

Courts can convict a rape accused on the basis of the sole evidence given by a victim unless her testimony is proved to be infirm and not trustworthy, the Supreme Court has ruled.

“If the totality of circumstances appearing on the record of the case discloses that the prosecutrix does not have a strong motive to falsely involve the person charged, the court should ordinarily have no hesitation in accepting her evidence,” a bench of Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice S H Kapadia said.

“It is a settled law that the victim of sexual assault is not treated as accomplice and as such, her evidence does not require corroboration from any other evidence including the evidence of a doctor. In a given case even if the doctor who examined the victim does not find sign of rape, it is no ground to disbelieve the sole testimony of the prosecutrix,” it said.

The court took into account the fact that “the Indian women have tendency to conceal such offence because it involves her prestige as well as prestige of her family. Only in few cases, the victim girl or the family members have the courage to go before the police station and lodge a case.”
