Zee TV’s popular serial Kumkum Bhagya stars Sriti Jha as Pragya and Shabir Ahluwalia as Abhi in the lead roles. In a recent episode of the show, we saw that Tanu (Leena Jumani) falsely accused Abhi of raping her in order to seek her revenge from Pragya and Abhi. He was arrested by the police and was taken into custody. Rape is a heinous crime that deserves the hardest punishment but women often use it in the wrong way. There have been real-life instances when a lady has falsely accused a male for her selfish interests. To recall some of them, here are some of the cases where men were falsely accused of rape by women in India.

Indore’s teen tried to fool the police with a fake rape case

In January 2021, a rape case was registered by Indore police when 19- year girl alleged that she was abducted and gang-raped by five men and was dumped on a railway track. A tenant in the house she lived in, who was a 25-year-old male, was detained by the police when in her statement she stated that he was one of the culprits. The girl kept changing her statement throughout the investigation and after much probing, she along with her live-in partner revealed that they concocted the story. She had previously been involved in a similar case and had gotten a compensation of Rs 2 lakh from the government so it is quite possible that she hatched the false plan in order to earn some more money.
