Is it necessary to publish such a news about a person who has been acquitted of all charges in the past?? How many High Court cases really come to light unless publicized by some media hungry Advocates? Seems like a clear case of extortion to me. RAPE has become a JOKE in India. Real rape case accused are out scot free and innocent men are harassed even after consensual sex, if the "promises" are not kept. Pathetic.
