A youth accused of rape has been acquitted by a Delhi court after the girl claimed that she filed the complaint in "anger" as he was delaying in marrying her.

The girl also told the court that she had physical relations with the youth with her own consent before they got married during the pendency of the case.

The court noted that the girl's mother had "also not disclosed any untoward incident" in her daughter's life.

"Considering the facts and circumstances of the case, especially the testimony of the prosecutrix, I am of the view that nothing incriminating had come on record against accused and as such accused deserves to be acquitted of the charges framed against him," Additional Sessions Judge Yogesh Khanna said.

"The prosecutrix was examined as prosecution witness who had stated that... the accused was known to her for the last four years prior to lodging the present complaint and that they were good friends and later they decided to marry each other but accused kept on delaying...

"The prosecutrix wanted to marry as soon as possible and due to some misunderstanding she filed the present complaint.

However, she reiterated that she made physical relations with her own consent and now that accused had married with her and they are living happily. She do not want any action. She also reiterated that she had filed the complaint due to anger and on account of delay caused by him in marrying her," the court observed.

The boy was arrested in July 2013 on the complaint made by girl, who alleged that he had raped her on several occasions on the false pretext of marrying her.
She had told the police that she even became pregnant and had to abort the child as the accused compelled to do so.

In her complaint, she said she refused to undergo abortion but the accused told her that he had prepared a blue film and if she would not agree for abortion he would upload it on Facebook.

She had also said that she had not disclosed the incident to anyone but despite all this, the accused uploaded some of her photographs on Facebook.
