False rape cases against Men

False cases are the reasons behind labelling of Delhi as the 'rape capital'. The court said after the 16 gang rape of a 23 year old in a moving bus in Delhi, it led to the creation of an atmosphere that "the mere statement of a lady that she has been raped, came to be taken as the gospel truth, on the basis of which the accused was arrested and chargesheeted".

This lead to an unprecedented surge in filling of false rape cases. The court observed that as acquittals in such cases are hardly ever reported, the falsely implicated persons lose their honour, dignity and status in the society and though these cannot be restored, "these victims" can be compensated so that they can start life afresh.
