Mumbai Brothers Spend Nearly Two Weeks In Jail In False Gang Rape Case; Bail Granted After Intervention Of Mumbai Police Commissioner
Kantu alias Kantilal Bheel, (35), from Ratlam, was booked by police for gang rape in January 2018, after a woman filed a complaint accusing him of taking her on his bike, promising to give her a lift to her brother’s house, but instead drove to a forest where he raped her.
According to the complaint, Kantu then called co-accused Bheru Amliyar and “handed her to him”. She then accused Bheru of taking her towards Indore on the pretext of labour work but raped her for six months there.
Subsequently, a case was registered on July 20, 2018, against Kantu and Bheru on IPC charges 366 (kidnap) and 376 (gang rape). Kantu was on the run, however, got arrested on December 23, 2020. On October 10 last year, a sessions court acquitted both the accused, observing that the prosecution failed to establish guilt beyond reasonable doubt.

Kantilal’s Petition Demanding Compensation
Sharing his pain with the media, Kantilal said that he was still tormented by his ordeal in prison. Adding further he stated that the accusation and jail time turned his world upside down and put his wife, children and elderly mother through great pain.
Speaking with TOI, the petitioner expressed,
I can’t describe the suffering I went through during those two years of imprisonment. My family can’t even afford innerwear. I faced extreme weather, like heat and cold, without clothes in prison.

Being a bread-earner for a family of six, he said,
The jail ordeal caused a skin disease and some other ailments, including a permanent headache that torments me even after my release. Imagine what my family went through without me.
By goddess’ grace, I got out of the prison. I want payback for every day that I was falsely locked up behind bars.
Kantilal’s petition accuses police of giving “false, fabricated and defamatory statements” against him and says that the false charge ruined his life and career. He seeks compensation from the state government:
- Rs 1 crore compensation each for loss of business and profession, loss of reputation and credit, on account of bodily harm and mental pain, loss of family life and loss of opportunities for education and career progression
- Rs 10,000 crore for “loss of God’s gift to humans e.g sexual pleasure”
- Rs 2 lakh to cover litigation costs during his time in prison
