Earlier this week, this bit of news caught my eye:
A woman who appears to be promiscuous in her sexual behaviour cannot be forced into a sexual relationship and nobody has a ‘licence’ to rape her, the Supreme Court has said. …
“Even if it is hypothetically accepted that the victim had lost her virginity earlier, it did not and cannot in law give licence to any person to rape her,”
Thank heavens that there is some sense in this world. Why did this even go to the Supreme Court? (emphasis mine):
…the High Court acquitted the accused persons on the ground that victim was promiscuous in her sexual behaviour and had already lost her virginity.
Seriously? What are they putting in the water in UP?
