Unmarried girls in India don’t do carnal activities for fun: Madhya Pradesh high court
INDORE: The Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh high court has denied bail to a man accused of 'rape on the pretext of marriage', observing that unmarried girls in India “do not indulge in carnal activities for the fun of it”.
“In the considered oion of this court, barring a few cases, India is a conservative society. It has not yet reached such a level (advance or lower) of civilization where unmarried girls, regardless of their re gion, indulge in carnal activities with boys just for the fun of it, unless it is backed by some future promise, assurance of marriage,” observed Justice the bench of Justice Subodh Abhyankar, adding: “And to prove her point, it is not necessary every time for a victim to try to commit suicide as in the present case.”
The compnant had taken poison on June 2 this year, a day after she was allegedly denied marriage. Police took her ‘dying declaration’, but she fortunately survived.
The accused faces charges under IPC sections 376 (rape), 376(2N) (repeated rape of the same woman), 366 (kidna or inducing woman to compel marriage) and various sections of Pocso Act at Mahakal police station in Ujjain. His counsel, Umesh Sharma, submitted before the court that the accused had a two-year affair with the compnant and they had entered into a physical relationship on their free will.
Sharma argued that the compnant is 21 years old and had falsely said, under the pressure of family members, that the in dent took place around three years ago. The parents of both the accused and compnant were ag inst the marriage because of their re gion, so it can’t be said under these circumstances that the accused committed rape, advocate Sharma said.
The go nment counsel opposed the bail, saying that the accused had repeatedly raped the woman since October 2018 on the pretext of marriage, and on June 1 this year refused to marry her because he was marrying elsewhere. This led to the suicide attempt, he pointed out.
After hearing both sides, the court denied bail to the accused and observed that in majority of rape cases, the defence of the accused is that the “prosecutrix was a consenting and in most of the cases the accused gets the benefit of doubt.

Judges should go to parks, gardens and beaches in India to see the carnal activities in public. Which imaginative world do these judges live in?
Pathetic. This is Indian judiciary.
WTF!!! Where is Gender equality???
They should stop moral policing and focus on judicial sy em of equal s.
Rape and cheating are two different things, judicial sy em should not mix it
Honorable judges are still living in stone age. They should visit star hels or oyo rooms
Judges live in 19th century it seems! Now we know why India is so backward.
We are in 2021 not dark ages. No wonder we are so far behind in million ways than the world.
If this statement holds true for girls, the same is applicable to boys also. Does the honorable judge means that Unmarried boys can do carnal activities for fun. The situation is changing. There are some boys/ girls who does all these things but to make swee statement and always blaming boys is not
Even if the girl wants it the boy should refuse knowing that the girl will also enjoy but the fault will be of the boy, so why simply do something and take the blame just masturbate.
well said! somewhere, these constitutional courts still have some sense & humanity left!

Good, some sensible positioning of cort
Though the law enshrines equal s to both the sexes but the so called the weaker sex know fully well how to exploit it to their advantage.
This kind of judgement will bring disrepute to the judiciary.
Real comedy happens in courts these days.
This judge is stuck in mediaeval era and is clueless about modern times. He should be removed from judiciary for being regressive minded. His judgement is his personal oion. Has he conducted any country wide survey of girls?
Indian justice sy em lives in 14th century
In which century or era these judge are living there life....??
LOL ! Talk about living in Ivory towers ! Which World do these Judges live in ?
hahaha..this shows the shortsightedness and ignorance of justice sy em.....little do they know the modern woman!
These judges destroy boys life
Good that Indian girls (and unmarried women) do not indulge in carna activity. Already the population in India exploded to nearly one and a half billion, 1/5 of the world´s population. We need to enforce drastic measures to reduce India´s population and ask and encourage our mus m neighbors to contain their population also.
