Nothing On Record To Even Remotely Suggest That The Act Was Consensual: Supreme Court Upholds Rape Conviction

Published by Admin on

Case: Lelu Alias Lain Kumar Vs State Of Chhattisgarh

Coram: Justices UU Lalit and Indira Banerjee

Case No: [ CrA 387 OF 2021]

Court Observation: “The statement of the prosecutrix was fully supported by PW6, who stated that they had found the prosecutrix in unconscious state soon after the incident was committed. In the circumstances, there is nothing on record which can even remotely suggest that the act was consensual. In the face of clear statements of the prosecutrix and the other witnesses on record, the Courts below were justified in convicting the appellant of the offence in question.”
