A local court has ordered the police to file a complaint against a 22-year-old girl, who had falsely accused a man of raping her.
Additional Sessions Judge Suresh Kumar Choubey gave his order yesterday after the girl turned hostile during the hearing of the rape case.
The allegations of rape levelled by the woman against the man turned out to be false during the hearing, Additional Public Prosecutor Alankar Vashishth said.
"The girl had fabricated fake evidence and given false statements and hence the court held that she is liable to be punished under sections 193, 194 and 211 of the Indian Penal Code," he added.
The court ordered the man to be freed and further directed the police to file of a complaint against the woman in a competent court, Vashishth said.
