The Rajasthan High Court recently ruled that the act of removing a minor girl's underwear and undressing in front of her does not constitute an "attempt to commit rape." A single-judge bench delivered the verdict while hearing a 33-year-old case involving an alleged assault on a minor girl. The incident reportedly occurred when the then-25-year-old accused allegedly took the six-year-old victim forcefully to a nearby location with intent to rape.
