The Delhi court on Thursday has granted bail to a 20-year-old man who was accused of rape, observing that it was a matter of trial whether he committed the crime or not.

Court’s Observation

Court noted that, “Accused is a young man of 20 years of age and not involved in any other case. Prosecutrix has not opposed the bail application of the accused. Charge sheet has been filed. Whether the applicant sexually assaulted the prosecutrix or not is a matter of trial.”

The court also noted that according to the final report, the prosecutrix didn’t provide her mobile phone despite being served a notice and her friends didn’t support her version.

It said that according to the medico-legal case, there were no marks of assault or external injuries and the prosecutrix refused to undergo internal examination.

The court said, “In view of the aforesaid facts and circumstances, applicant or accused is admitted to bail on furnishing of a personal bond with one sound surety in the sum of Rs 20,000.”

Other bail conditions included the accused not contacting the complainant, not tampering with evidence, not influencing witnesses, furnishing his address and mobile phone number and appearing before the court on each date.

The Subzi Mandi police station registered a case against the man under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 376 (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation) & 509 (word, gesture or act intended to outrage the modesty of a woman) in January.
