During a hearing on Monday, the Supreme Court made a surprise remark and asked the minor one of the rape accused if he was willing to marry the victim? Supreme Court Chief Justice of India SA Bobde told the rape accused, if you get married then we can help you, if you don’t do it then your job will be lost and you will be jailed Will go The CJI said these things during the hearing on the bail petition of a government employee named Mohit Subhash Chavan. Mohit is accused of raping a minor. This comment of the Supreme Court has started a new debate.
The accused officer has challenged the Bombay High Court’s decision in which the anticipatory bail petition has been rejected. During the hearing of the case, Chief Justice Bobde asked the accused petitioner, “Will you marry the victim?” The petitioner’s lawyer said that he would have to ask for it. Counsel for the petitioner stated that his client is a government official and if arrested, he will be suspended from his job. On this, the Supreme Court said that it should have been thought before raping a minor.
Chavan, an employee of Maharashtra State Electric Production Company, is accused of raping a minor school girl. The accused is booked under serious sections of the POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) Act. The Chief Justice said that we are not putting pressure on marriage. But tell me whether you want to get married or not, otherwise you will say that we pressed for marriage. At this, his lawyer told the Supreme Court that he would ask the petitioner and tell him. In this bench of the Supreme Court, apart from CJI Bobde, justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian were also involved.
