Some Women Tend to Convert Consensual Sex Into Rape Post Breakup, Says Delhi HC .

Justice Pratibha Rani in CRL.L.P. 137/2017 & CRL.M.A.4027/2017 titled as “X vs STATE NCT OF DELHI & ANR” said so while emphasising the need for “a clear demarcation between the rape and consensual sex especially in the case where complaint is that consent was given on promise to marry”.

“This Court had observed on number of occasions that the number of cases where both persons, out of their own will and choice, develop consensual physical relationship, when the relationship breaks due to some reason, the women use the law as a weapon for vengeance and personal vendetta. They tend to convert such consensual acts as an incident of rape may be out of anger and frustration thereby defeating the very purpose of the provision. This requires a clear demarcation between the rape and consensual sex especially in the case where complaint is that consent was given on promise to marry,” said Justice Pratibha Rani.
