Report No. 84

VII. Character of The Accused

7.31. Character of the accused.-

One of the women's organisations with whom we have held oral discussions has suggested that the Evidence Act should be amended suitably by providing that evidence of character of the accused shall be relevant in all cases of rape and molestation of women. Since we are recommending) amendment of the provision in section 155(4) of the Evidence Act which at present permits evidence of the "general immoral character" of the prosecutrix, we do not propose to recommend the change contemplated in the suggestion.

1. See recommendation as to section 155(4), Evidence Act, para. 7.25, supra.
