Mumbai: A sessions court in Dindoshi has rejected the bail application filed by a Merchant Navy captain arrested for allegedly forcing his wife to consume liquor and have sexual intercourse with other men and also video recording the act.

According to the complainant, the accused and she had a love marriage in 2009 but in 2015, she returned to her paternal home due to differences with her in-laws. Later, the couple moved into a rented flat after which her plight worsened.

 

As per the FIR, the day the complainant’s husband returned from a four-month-long sailing trip, a couple visited their home and her husband forced her to consume a lot of liquor and sleep with the man who had come to their house.

The complainant stated that she could not defend herself as she was under the influence of alcohol and her husband clicked a video of the act.

He then threatened her that he would make the video public on social media if she did not commit similar such acts with other men. The complainant claimed that her husband told her it was his fantasy.

The complainant said that when her husband was on duty, she got hold of the camera with the objectionable video recordings and lodged a FIR against him on February 23, 2019 with the Kasturba Marg police station.

 

Acting on the FIR, the police arrested the accused from the airport upon his return in May 2019.

The accused refuted all allegations and contended that it was the complainant who had relations with other men and when he came to know about it, he confronted her but she implicated him in a false case.

However, sessions Judge A.D. Deo rejected his bail plea observing that after going through the emails filed on record by the complainant and from the medical history provided by the accused to the medical officer, it was clear that the accused forced the victim to have sexual intercourse with unknown persons.
