#MaritalRape thread.
Woke fake book throwers wont like this thread, because it is not based on emotion or perception, it is based on the reality lawyers and cops see everyday.
Domestic violence and sexual abuse laws in India are heavily and unfairly skewed against men.
I recently came across a POCSO case where 17 yrs 10 months old daughter accused her father and uncle of molestation. Defendants were jailed immediately, lost case in lower court .
Girl had a love affair that family objected to and she screwed them.
3/n #maritalrape #pocso
Mother's testimony , cross examination, five years of appeals and behind the scenes negotiations , finally the innocent accused walked free.
We see many many cases where wife accuses in-laws of dowry harassment, domestic violence, sexual abuse etc.

Remember Mehul Bhatnagar?
He had released a video pleading innocence in a #POCSO case filed against him by a girl in his class who claimed he wrote sexually abusive letters to her. He was rusticated from school, arrested

Kindly take action against girl now please that she's been found guilty @CP_Jodhpur @Igp_Jodhpur

If you could jail such a young boy without his guilt established, you can surely take action against the girl for misusing laws, playing with his life and wasting time of police

Allahabad HC pushes for a "bio-social approach" while dealing with cases where charges under #POCSO Act get slapped even in matters of teenage affairs.
The court said, "Their decision could be impulsive, immature but certainly not sinful." Image
High Court was hearing a bail plea of a youth who was facing prosecution for various offences including rape and Section 3/4 of POCSO Act.

The man, who was himself a teenager at that time, had run away with a 14- year-old girl and got married. The couple now has a child too.
Granting bail to the man, the high court observed,
"The scheme of the POCSO Act clearly shows that it did not intend to bring within its scope or limits, the cases of the nature where the adolescents or teenagers involved in the dense romantic affair.”

As Parliament amends #POCSO to include the death penalty, a closer look shows that political posturing contrasts with reality. Politicians are often the ones protecting the rapist-killer. Pinki Virani takes a look at this scenario. #FPthreads 1/18
In November 2013, after more than seven months of work, Pinki Virani filed a PIL regarding cases which involved crimes upon children by adults. There were four identified cases – four children in different states murdered by five rapists. 2/18
All cases had been awarded the #DeathPenalty by all three tiers of courts and yet, all of the convicted rapists were still very much alive, living on tax-payers' money in jails, till 2013; the SC had awarded their death sentences in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2008. 3/18
