The Dindoshi sessions court while deciding on the bail application filed by a 26-year-old man, accused of raping a minor, has rejected his claim of the victim being a major, and that she had enjoyed the act, thus denying bail to him. The court has relied on the forensic science laboratory reports which shows old tears on the victim’s dupatta, which was seized after the offence. The reports point out that the girl was in pain when the accused was committing the dastardly act.
A case was registered with the Kandivali police in April 2015, when the accused Babulal Yadav, a mechanic by profession, allegedly raped the child.
The court’s order copy reads, “I have also gone through the school leaving certificate of the victim which shows that her birth date is January 10, 2004. I have also gone through the Medical Certificate which shows the history of sexual assault. The accused had abducted the child, took her to Manori on bike and forcefully committed sexual intercourse on her against her will. The dupatta which covered her face shows old tears. The girl while recording statement has specified that though she had a severe stomach ache, but she did not narrate the incident to anyone as the accused had threatened her.”
