Every Woman Expects Respect; Friendly Relation with a Girl Doesn’t Imply Her Consent For Physical Relationship: Bombay HC

Girl sharing-friendly relationship cannot be construed as consent to establish a physical relationship with her: Bombay High Court
The High Court also said that every woman always expects respect in any relationship.
The Bombay High Court last week held that merely because a girl is friendly with a boy, 
doesn't allow him to take her for granted and construe it as consent to establish a sexual relationship with her
The Bombay High Court ruled that just because a girl is friendly with a boy, he cannot take her for granted and interpret it as consent to establish a sexual relationship with her.
While denying anticipatory bail to a man accused of raping a girl under the guise of marriage, single-judge Justice Bharati Dangre stated that just because a girl is friendly does not give the boy permission to force himself upon her.

The judge was hearing an application filed by one Ashish Chakor seeking anticipatory bail because he was afraid of being arrested in connection with a First Information Report (FIR) lodged against him by the complainant at Mumbai’s MHB Colony Police station.

According to the FIR, the complainant girl and the applicant were friends. In 2019, the two went to the home of a mutual friend, where the applicant forced himself on her. She objected to his actions, but he expressed his feelings for her and promised 
to marry her soon. 
The applicant was involved in a physical relationship with the girl until she became pregnant and confronted him.
He, on the other hand, refused to marry her or accept responsibility for the pregnancy, instead accusing her of infidelity. 

The applicant had made a promise to marry her, and it was only after that promise that she agreed to the sexual act, according to Justice Dangre.

In light of this, the judge denied the anticipatory bail application.
Despite this, he had sexual relations with her twice before filing the FIR.
