Bemusing judgement!

Recently Supreme Court of India slammed Orissa High Court for acquitting one Sukru Gowda convicted for rape by a lower court.

The reasons of acquittal are very absurd
1. The woman victim was a healthy tribal capable of protecting herself from any physical assault
2. There was only one eye witness

The bungling of the High Court touched new highs by the following conflicting statements -
1. No such incidence took place
2. A case of false implication
3. The act was carried out with the consent of the victim

Moral of the story - If the rape victim is healthy it is a case of false implication!
