Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE -

The HC’s ob­ser­va­tions came as the court was hear­ing a plea filed by a 25-year-old man, who was seek­ing bail The man said he was in a re­la­tion­ship with a 24-year-old woman from Gore­gaon. The two were phys­i­cally in­ti­mate, and the man had promised to marry the woman At the end of the year, how­ever, he could not keep his prom­ise of mar­riage and the cou­ple broke up. Soon af­ter, the woman ac­cused him of rap­ing her.

“This can­not be con­sid­ered rape. You are a ma­jor, ed­u­cated and you have the choice of say­ing no. But, if you did not say no at the time, then it will be con­sid­ered as mu­tual con­sent.”
