  1. There should be strict punishment for False report.
    Court should order to Rape her in Public.

  2. In India most of laws are being misused only rather than real victims getting hardly any use of these laws shch as rape cases, 498A, D.V. act, CRPC-125, sec-24 etc.
    There should be provision that misusers must be punished and innocent person shold not be indulged in false cases.

    With best regards,
