Madhya Pradesh HC Denies Bail to Woman Accused of Filing Five Rape Cases Against Different Men

The Madhya Pradesh High Court refused to grant bail to a woman who had filed five separate rape cases against different individuals. Her plea for bail was made following allegations of extortion and vandalism against her, stemming from an incident involving a man's shop being ransacked and money being extorted from him.

Upon reviewing the case diary, Justice Maninder Bhatti observed direct allegations of extortion against the accused. The Court noted that the woman had previously filed multiple cases against various individuals, including two against her husband.

"The statement of Mohit Dudeja (complainant) also reflects that upon being threatened he gave a sum of Rs.1,80,000/- to the present applicant. It is also not in dispute that the present applicant has also lodged 5 cases under Section 376 I.P.C against different persons including two cases against one Vikas Ramrakhyani who, according to applicant, is her husband," it said.

Following the filing of a First Information Report (FIR) against the woman for offences including extortion, criminal intimidation, and others under the Indian Penal Code (IPC), she sought bail from the High Court after being denied bail by the trial court.

During the hearing, the woman's counsel argued that since no amount, property, or valuable security was delivered to her, the offence of extortion was not established. Additionally, he contended that the trial court's rejection of her bail application based on previous cases of a similar nature against her was unjustifiable. These past cases, he argued, should not have been considered as grounds for rejecting her application.

On the contrary, both the State and the complainant argued that the woman had a history of filing false and frivolous cases. They asserted that she had a habit of blackmailing, which resulted in several individuals becoming victims at her behest.

After considering the submissions, the Court said that it was not inclined to enlarge the applicant on bail.

Advocate Vishal Daniel represented the bail applicant.

Advocate CS Parmar and Aman Dawra appeared for the respondents.
