The Madhya Pradesh High Court on Wednesday granted bail to a rape accused. While granting the bail Justice Atul Sreedharan said that the application is allowed on the ground that she had gone with the applicant willingly without even informing her husband as to where she was going and stayed with him for almost three months. Inconclusiveness of MLC is taken as another ground for granting bail by Justice Sreedharan. In this instant case the lady lodged on FIR u/s. 376(2)(d), 365 and 342 with the police station Gadarwara district Narsinghpur. The lady in her statement stated that on 20/04/2016 the applicant and other co-accused took her to Indore on the pretext of providing job, but there was no work and the applicant allegedly raped her.
The court also observed that women’s husband had lodged the missing complaint which shows that she willingly went with the man.
