An 18-year-old girl tried the best possible way to get out of a serious situation where she could have faced severe consequences of her act. But Thanks to the Indian law system where a girl can surely pull off a ‘False Rape’ act.
The whole incident described by one of the cousins of the boy-
Last week, a cousin of mine faced this scary situation. He was spending time with his family post-dinner when around 11.30 one of the kids (around 12 years old) told him that he saw a shadow outside. My brother (around 35 years old) peeked out and saw someone hiding in his courtyard and picked up a cricket bat to head out. He found a girl 18-19 years old, hiding there. When summoned and screamed at, she said she lost her dupatta that flew inside his house. The neighbors came out of due to the noise and one of the neighbors said that he had chucked out the same girl out of his house 5 minutes ago, where she said she was running away from street dogs and entered the house premises for protection.

My brother immediately called the police and informed about the situation. That is when the girl started screaming that if the police arrive she will tell them that my brother and his family had pulled her inside from the road in attempt or harassment and rape. She removed all her clothes, dumped them on the ground and stood there because she knew she could not run away (with around 20 people around her). Naturally scared of a false police case with no evidence to prove his innocence, my brother panicked and called the police the second time telling them that she was creating such a scene. The police STILL did not take any action, let alone arriving on the spot. She stood there, telling them the dire consequences of how she could fix them up in a rape case when my brother made a third call and the police still did not arrive.
After the third call, she quietly picked up her clothes, went outside the gate, where 2 girls riding a two-wheeler came, picked her up and left.
The police never came.
The whole incident left us with many questions that a girl can easily get away with the fact of being a girl. The police should have actually taken this case much more seriously else girls would easily misuse the law which works in favor of them. The girl failed in her robbery attempt and ran away but even if police would have arrived they would have questioned the man, not the girl as rape charges are too grave to ignore but what if police would have jailed the man on the basis of fake rape accusations.
In such time, Government should make strict laws to check on fake rape charges and limit
the power provided to a woman.
