A man here in New Delhi has acquitted by the Delhi court for the charge of attempting to kill a woman, saying he was implicated at the instance of his ex-girl friend to settle scores with him.
While deciding the case, the court said there was no apparent reason or motive for the accused to assault the victim, who was the friend of his estranged lover, and the possibility of framing him in the criminal case could not be ruled out.
“Female of the species are more dangerous, which seems to be correct. A woman scorned is capable of doing anything as in the process, the social norms, customs and for that matter even the law cannot be an obstacle or a deterrent. The instant case seems to be one such example,” Additional Sessions Judge Vimal Kumar Yadav said.
The court acquitted East of Kailash resident Jitender for allegedly assaulting the woman on the night of April 12, last year after entering her house and, thereafter, fleeing the spot by locking her inside. The woman’s brother had lodged the complaint at Amar Colony police station against Jitender.
