Rare Case: Woman Makes False Accusation Of Gang Rape, Jailed For 10 Years

Bhopal: In a rare case, a 46-year-old woman and her son-in-law have been sentenced to 10 years in jail for falsely accusing four neighbours of gang rape and fabricating evidence to support her allegation.

According to senior public prosecutor Mohammad Azam of Ashok Nagar district, 150 km from Bhopal, Guddi Ojha and her 29-year-old son-in-law Gopal Rajak were in a relationship and hatched a plan to frame their neighbours in 2014 as she did not get along with them.

However, she was exposed after the neighbours called her bluff during investigation into the FIR registered on her statement in August 2014. Investigators were persuaded to conduct a DNA test to compare the semen sample from the woman’s clothes with that of her son-in-law, Gopal Rajak.

As it turned out, Gopal’s sample matched with the one collected from the woman’s clothes.

Ashok Nagar’s first additional sessions judge Mahesh Kumar Chauhan sentenced Guddi and Gopal Rajak to 10 years in prison for fabricating evidence to secure conviction and criminal conspiracy, and six months’ jail for providing false information to a public servant.

It was a rare case where police charged a woman for filing false case and fabricating evidence, and pursuing the matter to its logical conclusion.

During interrogation, Gopal confessed to being in a relationship with Guddi and that they had filed a false case against the neighbours.
