Court acquits BSF cop in rape case as prosecutrix turns hostile

3rd Additional Sessions Judge Jammu today acquitted a rape accused a resident of Khara Gandoh and serving in BSF.

According to the police case that on 07.08.2016 prosecutrix had filed a written report in the police in presence of her mother stating therein that   the person,   committed rape upon her when she was alone in her rented  house. 

The Court after hearing both the sides, observed that on perusal of the statement of the prosecutrix reveals that the accused was not at all involved in the commission of rape of the prosecutrix.  The plea of the learned counsel for the accused has the force so this Court is in agreement with the arguments of the counsel for the accused as such the evidence of the prosecution is closed  and holds that the prosecution has miserably failed to bring home the guilt of the accused , he is accordingly acquitted of the charges leveled against him.
