It was further alleged that he raped her again thereafter. The Trial Court convicted him under section 376(1) of the Indian Penal Code and sentenced him to undergo seven years rigorous imprisonment and a fine of Rs.50,000.In appeal, Justice Bhaskar Raj Pradhan noted that there is an inordinate delay of five years in lodging the FIR and therefore it is equally important to seek corroboration of what she deposed in court. “The court can, in a given case, rely upon the sole testimony of the victim if it is safe, reliable and worthy of acceptance and convict the accused. However, it is always prudent for the court to seek corroboration when the sole testimony is the only evidence available.”, the court observed.Referring to the records, the court said that there is a serious discrepancy in the FIR and the statement recorded under section 164 Cr.P.C on the one side and the deposition on the other. While it is important to be conscious about the trauma of the victim – a victim of alleged sexual assault, it is also important to be conscious about the well settled principle of criminal jurisprudence that more serious the offence, the stricter the degree of proof, the court added. While setting aside the conviction, the bench further observed:”In the circumstances, this court is of the considered view that although the evidence led by the prosecution leads to grave suspicion that the appellant had in fact raped the victim, it would not be judiciously prudent to convict the appellant on suspicion alone. None of what the victim deposed have been corroborated even by her family members. The victim’s version of rape is not corroborated, so is her version of pregnancy and abortion. There is evidence to suggest that the victim had been infatuated by the appellant and had expressed her desire to marry him. Some of the prosecution witnesses have deposed about their love affair. There is evidence to suggest that the victim had herself visited the appellant when he had an accident. The possibility of a relationship gone sour cannot be ruled out. Several of the prosecution witnesses had deposed hearing about their “physical relationship” and “sexual relationship”, both of which would not amount to rape. In such circumstances, this court is also of the considered view that the appellant must be given the benefit of doubt.”Case: Makraj Limboo vs. State of Sikkim [Crl. A.

United States international Altidore, 23, scored only once in 28 games for Hull but proved to be deadly in front of goal during two seasons in Holland, notching 31 times last season for AZ Alkmaar. Altidore told the Sunderland Echo: “I think I just became a better player in Holland than the one when I was at Hull. New Sunderland striker Jozy Altidore insists his two years in Holland have made him a much better player than during his previous spell in the Barclays Premier League. “On and off the ball and linking up with the players around me, I just got better. It’s that simple. I’ve become a much more confident player since then. “The two leagues are completely different, but we’re trying to play football which looks good and hopefully I can score some goals.” Altidore has also scored in four consecutive internationals for the United States in June.
