Following a complaint lodged by a widow, the Police arrested Firoz Ahmed under IPC sections 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation). Firoz had consensual sex with the woman after promising her that he would marry her.

Earlier, the trial judge had dismissed Ahmed’s bail application, citing Firoz had obtained the woman’s consent under the pretext of marriage though he never intended to  marrying her.

Justice Kailash Gambhir of the Delhi High Court agreed with the view of the trial judge. He dismissed the anticipatory bail application of Firoz Ahmed since the offence fell under IPC section 375(4), which states that consent for sex obtained under a false pretext also amounts to a rape he upheld the prosecution’s argument that Firoz Ahmed did not deserve a bail.

    1. this cannot be considered as cheating! If a person is cheated of worldly properties we can get it back through hardwork! but not virginity and honor lost! if you think she can earn what she has lost justice is done! Do you justify the trauma, agony and suffering she and her family is in just because she consented to have sex by trusting the guy who had malafide lust intentions?
