It’s true – the new rape law removes the presumption of innocence
The Criminal Law (Amendment) Act of 2013 inserted Section 114A into the Evidence Act of 1872. It states
In a prosecution for rape … where sexual intercourse by the accused is proved and the question is whether it was without the consent of the woman alleged to have been raped and such woman states in her evidence before the court, that she did not consent, the court shall presume that she did not consent.
In other words, in a he-said-she-said scenario, courts are required to presume the man* guilty, unless he can prove otherwise.
*Only men can be accused under the new law, because enlightened activists decided that female-on-male and female-on-female rape don’t exist.
