Rapist to be tried as per bio age, not mental age, of survivor: SC 22.7.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
The Supreme Court has ruled that the Protection of Child against Sexual Offences Act 2012 (POCSO) cannot be invoked to prosecute a man for raping a mentally-challenged adult victim, whose under-developed brain is akin to a child's. A victim's plea to prosecute her rapist under the stringent act was denied by the top court on Friday. Taking a stand contrary to its March ruling, the court also abated proceedings against the sole accused — Santosh Yadav — who died during trial court proceedings. Taking a humanitarian view, the SC had then ruled that proceedings in a case involving rape of a woman with mental disability would continue despite the sole accused being dead. The top court judgment came while deciding on a case where a 38-year-old woman, suffering from cerebral palsy, who was allegedly raped by Yadav.

"On a reading of the POCSO Act, it is clear to us that it is gender neutral. In such a situation, to include the perception of mental competence of a victim or mental retardation as a factor will really tantamount to causing violence to the legislation by incorporating a certain words to the definition. "By saying 'age' would cover 'mental age' has the potential to create immense anomalous situations without there being any ...
