A 38-year-old woman in Mumbai has been convicted of inciting her husband to rape another woman.
According to Indian media reports, a Mumbai magistrate court has sentenced the woman to one year in prison.
In 2020, this woman had provoked her husband to rape a woman living in the neighborhood by tearing her clothes.
This woman had a bad relationship with her neighbor for a long time.
The court held that the testimony of the witnesses made it clear that the accused used force against the woman victim deliberately even though he knew the consequences.
According to the court, by torturing and tearing the clothes of the plaintiff, the accused violated the right to privacy.
The court said that it was learned from the witnesses that the men living in the building were also present when the incident took place.
The magistrate said that this is a violation of Section 354 of the IPC, under which a woman can be held guilty of incitement to rape and has no immunity.
The court sentenced him to a minimum of one year in prison and a fine of Rs 6,000 instead of the maximum of 5 years.
In her statement in the court, the victim said that she had a very good relationship with the accused’s mother and this led to the conflict between the two.
He said that during the quarrel, the accused hit the slipper and when a neighbor tried to stop him, he grabbed her by the throat and tore her clothes.
