Sexual consent obtained through a false promise of reinstatement is not “free consent”: Madhya Pradesh HC

The Madhya Pradesh High Court as of late held that getting the assent of the prosecutrix to include in a sexual demonstration, by making bogus guarantee of re-work, can’t be called ‘free assent’ and it would add up to assent got under a misguided judgment of reality (according to Section 90 of IPC).

The Bench of Justice G. S. Ahluwalia noticed along these lines as it would not suppress a FIR enrolled for the offense of Rape against the Director of an emergency clinic by the assistant of the medical clinic (casualty).

The victim alleged that the hospital director / applicant / defendant made her the hospital receptionist and that he sexually abused her many times as a result. She alleged that the applicant had repeatedly sexually abused her for reasons of work and that she had pressured the public prosecutor to have sex with others.

From there on, she affirmed, that on the appearance of restoration, the candidate had physically abused her on various event, nonetheless, she was not given the work.

At the beginning, the Court saw that if the prosecutrix didn’t submit any question concerning her sexual infringement, then, at that point it can’t be said that the prosecutrix had enjoyed a sexual demonstration intentionally.

Faced with the allegation that the applicant had induced her to quit her job and that she hoped and believed that she would find another job in the hospital, she continued to have sex with the applicant. In this case, the court concluded that there was no withdrawal of FIR in this case and denied its 482 CrPC request.
