No one can force a woman to love somebody: The verdict suggests

No one can force a woman to love somebody: The verdict suggests

Why can’t ladies remain in peace in her own country India, a Supreme Court bench has put forth its viewpoint over growing crimes against ladies.
The observation came while hearing an appeal by a petitioner who was sentenced to seven years in jail by the Himachal Pradesh (HP) High court for allegedly teasing her which compelled 16-year-old lady to opt for an intense step of committing suicide. The bench headed by justice Dipak Misra came with the observation for the Indian women.
“Why can’t ladies live in peace in this country,” said the apex court while reserving the appeal verdicts. The bench maintains the view that nobody will force a lady to like somebody as she has her own will and choice. The bench which also comprised justices AM Khanwilkar and MM Shantanagoudar, said that a woman has her own choice to love or not to love a person and no one can force her to love someone against her will.  The man has to accept the concept of love.
During the arguments, the counsel who was pleading the accused, raised his doubts over the girl’s dying declaration, the spoken language that as per the doctor’s reports she was unable to talk or write after being hospitalized. The doctors said that she had almost 80% burnt and it was not possible for her to write or talk anything and so couldn’t write even her dying declaration. She was unable to speak also. She had her both hands badly destroyed. She wasn’t in a position to speak up or write anything.
The bench also said the man that as per the girls’ dying declaration, “you had created a situation which had compelled her to commit such act.”
In July 2010 the trial court has considered the man innocent but an appeal was made to Supreme Court for the final verdicts.  Police reported that the girl’s father had lodged a complaint against the man for an alleged kidnap and rape case in which he got acquitted.
The case alleged that the defendant used to threaten and harass the girl which force her to take the extreme step and set herself ablaze in July 2008 in the absence of her parents at home. She was taken to a hospital but died during her treatments.
The Supreme Court based on the dying declaration as well as the evidence put forth declared that the accused had encouraged the commission of suicide while continuously teasing and harassing the deceased and thus he is considered guilty.
