New Delhi, November 22
The Supreme Court has ruled that having consensual sex on the false promise of marriage amounted to rape and awarded life sentence to a man for having an affair for two years and impregnating the victim, a relative of the convict.

The convict, Naushad, a resident of Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh, “brazenly raped her for two years or more giving her the false assurance that he would marry her, and as a consequence she became pregnant...We find the accused-respondent guilty of the offence of rape as defined under Section 375 IPC,” a Bench comprising Justices SJ Mukhopadhaya and V Gopala Gowda held.

The Bench noted that Naushad had taken “undue advantage” of his relation to visit her house often during 2001-03 and committed a breach of trust she had in him.

“He thus invaded her person by indulging in sexual intercourse with her in order to appease his lust, all the time knowing that he would not marry her. He committed an act of brazen fraud leading her to believe that he would marry her.”

The apex court further held that “a woman’s body is not a man’s plaything and he cannot take advantage of it in order to satisfy his lust and desires by fooling a woman into consenting to sexual intercourse simply because he wants to indulge in it...

“The accused in this case has committed the vile act of rape and deserves to be suitably punished for it.”
Oh my goodness India is an interesting place...

Hmmm, tough choice.
Life in prison or life in marriage.
Which is worse?
I'm just here for the money
