However, during the trial, she deposed that the physical relations between her and the accused were consensual, reports Asian Age. “From the testimony of the woman, it is clear that she was never raped by the accused and had consensual sexual intercourse with him,” the court noted

“Considering the facts and circumstances of this case, I am of the opinion that the prosecution has failed to prove its case. Hence, the accused in the present case is acquitted,” the judge said.

  1. Consensual intercourse is very very good for health . The Orthopaedic surgeon should carry forward his activities as he seams to be a trained person for sexual activity but only with consent . Extra marital intercourse must be more enjoyable to him . Illicit is more enjoyable than licit .

  2. Doctor are CURPUT and ride behaviour in india

  3. It\’s easy to accuse on doctors .
