Dalit girl files SC-ST act on boyfriend who later found tribal in court trial

Pune(Maharashtra, India): The SC-ST court has on July 17 granted anticipatory bail to two persons who were accused of the SC-ST act and rape allegations. 

The accused were booked under Sections 376(n), 366, 420, 406, 323, 504, 506 r/w 34 of Indian Penal Code and Sections 3(1)(r), (s), (u), (w)(i)(ii), 3(2)(va) of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989 and were seeking interim bail.  

Additional Sessions Judge Mrs. Sharayoo V. Sahare granted relief to Machindra Namdeo Mohite and Vaishali   Machindra Mohite, accused of sexually harassing a girl on the pretext of marriage and using casteist slurs against the complainant.

While granting relief to the accused, it was brought to the notice of the court that the accused themselves come from tribal community so the provisions of the SC-ST act is not attracted towards them. 

Also, for the last six years, the Complainant was in relation with the main accused who has already been released on bail and there is an unexplained delay of four months in lodging the F.I.R.

However, It’s been a matter of investigation that how can a Dalit girl file a complaint against the persons of the tribal community.
