    Mumbai: As much as 71.9 per cent of the accused facing rape charges in Mumbai are alleged to have lured their victims on the pretext of marriage, according to a review of such cases reported till October this year. Data compiled by police shows that of the 542 rape case filed so far in Mumbai this year, 389 offences (71.9 pc) were committed by "boyfriends" of the victims after they had promised marriage, Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria said today.

    He added that while six per cent of the sexual assault cases involved unknown persons, the accused in the rest were either relatives or immediate siblings of the victims.
    Maria was responding to queries by journalists on the increasing number of rape cases in the metropolis. Of the 542 cases lodged till October 31, 477 have been solved. Of the 333 cases which were registered during the same period last year, 316 were solved, police added. "We have been exhorting people to come forward and lodge complaints. Hence, women who faced sexual assault are approaching us without any fear," Maria added.

    He said that more victims approaching police was one of the reasons why the registration of rape cases had seen a jump in the metropolis. The Police Commissioner, meanwhile, said that special focus would be given on tracking down missing persons. He said that chain-snatching cases fell to 1,257 from 1,832 reported in the January-October period in 2013, a drop of 31 per cent. The top cop has shared the above data a day after a report compiled by Mumbai-based NGO Praja Foundation suggested that crimes against women, including rape, molestation and chain snatching, have risen sharply in the metropolis in 2013-14. Meanwhile, police said that they have so far this year deported 12 Nigerians and one Tanzanian who were arrested in connection with narcotics cases.

    So, this means that most rape cases are not really "rape" at all, but cases of consensual sex where the woman feels bitter and slighted later.

    Promising marriage and not sticking to the promise needs to be a case of cheating and not rape. Our lawmaker morons are ruining the seriousness and pain of real rape victims with such frivolous nonsense.

    And yeah, the case of cheating needs to work both ways - when a lady goes back on her word, the man should be allowed to lodge a case of cheating if he so desires.

    But certainly not rape. This is making a mockery of rape.

    Police reports are not to be trusted because they are not free from bais. Let this data be verified by the judiciary or a probe panel and then we will talk


    This report does not change the fact that India is a hell for women.Don't believe me,then look out of the window into the streets,how many women do you see per 100 men ?

    High time a distinction is made between the average rural/semi-urban woman and the middle-class educated urban empowered woman.

    I don't see a reason to have reverse discrimination in favour of the software engineer woman working in Accenture or IBM in Bangalore.

    The definition of rape has enlarged to a great extent.

    It is because of the demand of the society after the Nirbhay rape in Delhi.

    Yeah, after the Nirbhaya rape, the media morons were screaming for "tough laws", "tough laws", "tough laws". Media morons led by the shouter-in-chief Arnab Goswami were responsible for the introduction of draconian laws that are totally messed up.

    Our laws were always fine. It was always enforcement that was a problem, and still is. Instead of demanding police reforms, increase in police budgets, better quality of policemen and such things, our media morons with their simplistic childish moronery kept screaming for "tough laws".

    These "tough laws" are not deterring Nirbhaya type of rapes - we hear of one such case almost every day, especially from UP. The draconian laws have just become a tool for harassment and extortion in most cases.

    Female Biased laws are needed to prevent any atrocities on physically weaker sex.

    It seems the issue is with uncertainty/confusion associated with them !!

    Of-course no one deny that.In India law must be tilt towards women but i think "pretest of marriage" clause may not put under rap* instead book boyfriend under 'Cheating or molestation'.

    I wouldn't even permit "molestation" charge. It has to be cheating, period. Nothing more than that.

    The very premise of "rape" or "molestation" is that the woman was violated. A man "forced unwelcome attention" upon her. In case of consensual sex, the woman has all the enjoyment that the man has, she takes all the pleasure and very often, additional associated "benefits" such as lunches and dinners, numerous small gifts, bragging rights on days like "valentine's day", etc. After all this, if the woman can slap a case of rape or molestation, it takes the meaning out of those words.

    This law has to be modified.

    I agree with u totally ,some one said above there is a big diff btw 'uneducated or rural women' and 'urban educated women'.We can't make separate laws for them,in molestation case jail term may be max 3-5yrs(cheating is less).Another thing u must know only 15% rap* cases are reported (around the world&India).I don't think many women go to police stn and report fake rap* cases in general in India.So may be some 3-10% are fake cases.Rest are genuine

    Indian laws must tilt towards women.period.

    There is a big difference between the "Society" and the so-called "Civil Society".

    Society is "natural" Civil Society is a place where Super-Humans discuss and decide what is good or bad for us sub-humans.
