Anti-rape Bill in Parliament today; age of consent 18 now

A day after the Union Cabinet cleared the Anti-rape Bill by retaining the age of consent for sex at 18 years, Bill set for Parliament’s nod on Tuesday.

Sources said that Bill will first be introduced in Lok Sabha on Tuesday and it will comfortably be passed there as Government has the required number in the lower House.

Earlier on Monday, the Union Cabinet, at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, cleared amendments to the The Criminal Law (Amendment) Bill-2013 agreed at an all party meeting.

The latest version of the Bill retains the age of consent to 18 years as was in the Ordinance promulgated on February.

On Monday’s meeting, the Government also diluted the sections dealing with voyeurism and stalking to “reduce gross abuse”. Now, both the offences will be bailable for first time offenders. However, repeat offenders would be denied bail and punishment would extend to a maximum of five years in jail.

In a bid to prevent misuse, the term stalking has been defined and it would be deemed as offence only when indulged into persistently.

Disrobing a woman by force, even at a private place including a house, would be a punishable offence with jail term of upto seven years.

Earlier, disrobing a woman at a public place was a punishable offence but Government was of the view that the mention of public place was prone to misuse by offenders.

    GOVT. FRADULANTELY TRYING TO IMPLEMENT STALIKNG AND VOYEURISM ,
    and DIVERTED ATTENTION of all media and peopels towards REDUCING AGE FOR SEX FROM 18 TO 16 ,
    which was unnecessarly discussed lot in all media , and trying to BRING more contravercies in ANTI-RAPE BILL

    FORGOT TO DISCUSS DANGEROUSE AND MISUSE OF implementing stalikng and voyeruism under IPC,

    POLICE CAN PICK UP anybody on false complaints by any girl / female/
    even there is no evidence to prove anything , but
    POLICE WILL GET POWERS TO HARASS ANYBODY
    and there will be time waste at police stations and courts for getting evidence for stalikng and voyeruism ,

    male can be falsely implicated by conspiracy from his enemies in office and locality around him

    GIRLS/FEMALE ARE MOSTLY HIRED AND TUTORED , FIRST LURE BOYS/ MALE TO BRING THEM CLOSE
    AND LATER suddenly they can lodge police complaints , as directed by her boss to remove any person from
    job ,in corporate offices / and before attending in court dates / or for any important work,

    there will be increase in criminal activities after false police complaints and arrests of any male/boys
    which will ruin jobs and future carrier ,
    so punishments should not be grevious and do not compare with murder or lstabbing anybody

    STOP GIVING POWERS TO POLICE PERSONS TO DIRECTLY PICK UP AND REGISTERING FIR aginst anybody
    without evidence or with any fake and fabricated evidence in such BASELESS stalikng and voyeruism complaints ,

    such cases should be only solved in court ,with any definite evidence , and
    police should be given only powers to register these complaints as bailable offences ,and donot involve in criminal acts

    government should discuss stalking and voyeurism biill from all angels and then try to implement it
    donot make hurry to bring anti rape bill and , under law there is already provisions to punish a person in rape cases
