A doctor in Chhattisgarh has been charged with rape by the Supreme Court of India after a woman from Koni, Bilaspur lodged a complaint against him.

They had a love affair which resulted in a intimate physical relationship. The man had promised her that he will eventually marry her. Even their families knew about the relationship.

However, the doctor soon tied the knot with someone he was already engaged with. Angered by the betrayal, the woman took things to the court and was given justice.

The Supreme Court sentenced the doctor with ten years of imprisonment and later reduced it to seven years.

Here's what the judge says about the unprecedented ruling:

"Rape is the most morally and physically reprehensible crime in a society, an assault on the body, mind, and privacy of the victim. While a murderer destroys the physical frame of the victim, a rapist degrades and defiles the soul of a helpless female. Rape reduces a woman to an animal, as it shakes the very core of her life.”
