Minor's consent is 'no consent in eyes of law', says Thane court while sentencing man to 7 years imprisonment for raping teen

Judge Jadhav said it has come to light that even prior to this incident, the accused had sexual intercourse with the minor girl, who was unaware of the consequences. "Under such circumstances, considering the age of the victim, her consent is no consent in the eyes of law," the judge observed.
