POCSO 377 gay case . Grindr application

22-May-2024 (In Criminal Law)
Do I have chances of winning the case of POCSO 7/8 and 377? I met a gay boy through gay dating app GRINDR. This app is for 18+ but he was a minor. He came at my house late night telling me that he frequently do this going out of house and come back in an hour. He got call from his family as family started searching him in house. Later they made false story that I blackmail the minor boy on Instagram and called at my house . Is their chances of winning?

The winning and losing will depend upon the allegations that police had levied on you in the chargesheet. And it will be the matter of arguments in the court to prove you right that the family members of the child had made false stories just to create harassment on you.

Are there any medical evidence against you ? or any CCTV footage. Whether you were involved physically but in false rape cases the only things that saves you is a good cross examination which will show fallacy in the prosecution case

Sexual intercourse with the person minor do attracts the provisions under Pocso. However, it is negated that 377 IPC can be made out considering supreme court has already decriminalized penalising of homosexual relationships. In the circumstances mentioned above, I think you should move for quashing of the FIR, if it is registered or seek discharge from the court.
