Top Cop accused of rape. His name is all over press but accuser safe & anonymous ! Rules of the game I suppose

A 27 year old model who was earlier arrested for providing escort services !!!, has accused a Top cop of "rape". Now that cop has obtained arrest stay etc , but he is still fearing arrest. His name, designation and photos though are all over the electronic media while the woman / escort service provider is all safe and anonymous !!

This raises many questions
  • why such false cases do NOT amount to defamation ?
  • why is the woman always called a victim EVEN before the case is proven ?
  • and what is this doing to the morale of our cops

I'm being framed because I had arrested her, says DIG accused of rape

Deputy Inspector General Sunil Paraskar alleged in court yesterday that he had arrested the model for running escort services; he has been given interim protection from arrest till July 31

Deputy Inspector General Sunil Paraskar, who was booked for raping a 27-year-old model, has got interim protection from the Sessions Court till July 31.

The police will now be recording the woman's statement in front of a magistrate to make their case strong. Fearing arrest, 57-year-old Paraskar had approached the Sessions Court yesterday to apply for anticipatory bail.

He said that he had arrested the woman in a case under the Prevention of Immoral Trafficking Act (PITA) for running escort services.

Later, she had come to him asking him to arrest another model, whom she had a rivalry with, and he had refused to do so. He also said that he had only met her twice, and that too in a coffee shop. Paraskar's lawyer Rizwan Merchant told the Judge Vrushali Joshi, "Paraskar is being framed in the case as he had arrested the victim earlier.

The entire morale of the police force could be lowered if he is arrested in the case, and nobody would investigate cases." The court granted Paraskar interim relief till July 31, when his anticipatory bail plea will be heard.

The women's cell of the Crime Branch has, meanwhile, decided to record the statement of the victim before a magistrate under 164 of the CrPc.
