Rs 15L awarded to man falsely accused of rape
CHENNAI: In a rare reprieve to a rape accused, a Chennai court has awarded Rs 15 lakh as compensation to man who, as a college student, was arrested on charges of rape and made to face trial for more than seven years.
Acquitted in the case after a DNA test proved he was not the father of the child the woman delivered, Santhosh filed a suit for compensation saying the false rape charge had ruined his career and life. Partly allowing his plea, a city court awarded Rs 15 lakh as compensation and directed the woman and her parents who made the false compnt to pay the compensation.
Santhosh sought Rs 30 lakh as dges from the girl, her parents and the Secretariat Colony police inspector who investigated the case. Santhosh's lawyer A Sirajudeen said his client's family and the woman's family were neighbours. They belonged to the same community, it was agreed between the families that Santhosh would marry the woman.
Later, however, the families parted ways following a property dispute. Santhosh and his family shifted to another neighbourhood in Chennai.
Santhosh had enrolled for BTech in an engineering college when the woman's mother approached his parents cming that he had impregnated the girl and demanded that the families should arrange their marriage.
After he denied any such relationship with her, she and her parents lodged a compnt of rape. He was arrested and remanded in judicial custody for 95 days. On February 12, 2010, he came out on bail. By that time, the woman had delivered a girl. A DNA test proved that Santhosh was not the child's father. The case went for trial. A mahila court in Chennai acquitted him on February 10, 2016.
Santhosh filed the suit for dges saying he was made to spend Rs 2 lakh for case. He couldn't get even a commercial driving licence and was forced to work as an office assistant for a pittance.

Really sad, only 15 lakhs what about the daily pain the complete family had to face every day.
Why aren't the girl and her family in jail for lying to the court under oath?
I think girl along with family must send behind bars
These low lives (the lady and her parents) should be arrested straightaway and face the full wrath of the law! 15 lakh compensation is just a joke for ruining an innocent person's life, reputation, career and emotional well-being!

I’ve always wondered why Girls who falsely accuse men of Rape have never been Fined! In fact, these girls should also be Jailed for several years!
2010 DNA test proved he is not father and 2016 he was acquited. Wow, great & efficient Indian Judiciary!!!
15 lac very less amount for 7 Years Pain, i hope 1 crore above .....
Only 15 lakhs is not sufficient in such a harassment and mental trauma he might have sufferred with..
The laws which allows a man to be sent to jail on rape case without any proof or investigation is a great injustice, some kind of basic investigation should happen before he is sent to jail.
The woman must be jailed
At least 35 lakh in compensation, and minimum 1 year jail to the woman.
Unless we bring judicial reforms, this country will never develop
Presstitutes R Curse
Just 15 Lakhs for ruining someone's life and career?
Who made her pregnant then????
