India would possibly be the only country that considers mutual physical relationship going sour as ‘rape’. As a man, even if you are in a completely consensual intimate alliance with a woman, you never know when the same could be registered as rape against you.
On the face of several cases, one may find it berserk how women could be pushing it to the extreme by misusing the law, nonetheless, if you belong to the male gender breed, you will have to bear the consequences as per our law.
One such case has been reported from Banda city of Uttar Pradesh where a man has been arrested for allegedly raping a woman almost 15 years ago. Yes you read that right!

The complainant is a 28-year-old woman who has accused her former partner, now 31-years of age, of raping her fifteen years ago. The man was arrested on Saturday after the woman lodge complaint against him at the local police station.
Both the complainant and accused are married. Kotwali Police Station SHO Dinesh Singh said,
After marriage, she maintained physical relationship with the accused, as a result of which her husband left her. Till a few days ago, she was living with the accused as his second wife.

The above case may sound totally unbelievable – also we do not really know what results would the medical examination yield after 15-years of alleged incident. However, this seems to be a clear backlash of a love affair going kaput, after which the woman has misused the rape law as a tool to settle score with a man — a person she has been in a relationship before and after marriage with for several years.
