now it doent make any difference in delaying FIR in rape cases.,bcoz SC delivered the judgements in such a cases on delaying FIR due to reason of victim's mental condition after incident.but i helps to accussed for granting bail in some cases as per factual aspect of the matter.

Manu Sir, granting bail for non bailable offences is left to the discretion of the courts. But as Saumit sir has told, even though there is delay in filing FIR, court may grant bail in some cases.

 Not any more....In cases of violence against women the laws are very supportive towards women.

An anticipatory bail can be granted though considering the fact that the actress slept over her rights of taking a legal action for 7 months between march and september...This in a way is Vengeance...Unable to fulfil the promise she filed a F.I.R saying its against her will which is baseless and cannot be considered rape in the first place .Rape is s*xual intercourse without consent of the person.Had it been rape which means against the will of the women then she would have entertained the accused after having being raped or would file F.I.R

The charges genuine i see is breach of trust...Falase Promise that can be charged against the accused...

Prove in the court that the women was ready to compromise and also it wasnt foreful has it been forceful she would not revert back going to all places you have mentioned.Thanks


Making delay in filing FIR may help the accussed for getting the bail. It is depending upon court's discretion.

Manu ji,

Bail depends upon case to case, so u may share the FIR contents and then we can discuss that the bail will be granted or not.
