Rape accused let off after DNA test

A girl, who alleged that she was kidnapped and raped by her neighbour for nearly six months leading to her getting pregnant, made a U-turn before a Delhi court saying she was in love with the accused, leading to his acquittal.

The court also pointed out that as per the prosecution’s version, the girl was made to abort the child she had conceived as a result of being raped by the accused, but the DNA of the accused did not match with the foetus.

“The prosecutrix (girl) denied all the allegations which have been made against the accused during the course of investigation and rather stated that she was in love with him and had accompanied him voluntarily and the physical relations between her and the accused were established with her consent,” noted additional sessions judge Kaveri Baweja while acquitting 22-year-old central Delhi resident Javed.

The girl had initially accused Javed of confining her in his house and raping her for months. However, during her cross-examination, the girl deposed that as her parents objected to her marriage with the accused, she left her house and went with him and wants to continue to live with him.
