Tsunami of false rapes cases exposed in past few days

The voilent incident in Delhi with a boy and girl is leading to an exposure of a Tsunami of false rape cases from women all over India. The issue of false rapes in India was well document but was rarely discussed . It came to light time and again that over 74% rapes were false and consensual , however the Indian media had no interest in exposing these false cases. However the incidents in Delhi has led to a renewed interest into the magnitude of this serious problem . False rape are equally dangerous and heinous as the crime itself because i leads to a irreparable harm to the life of the accused. Apart from languishing in jail for moths the accused loses his social esteem , earning potential and manu a times is driven to commit suicide . However in most cases the woman filing the false is let go with a slap on the wrist or is slapped with Sec 182 whose punishment is no way even close to the pain and suffering she imparts to the accused . Below is a running list of the phenomenal number of false rape cases unearthed for the first time by the media. Note that the problem is not restricted to a certain area is rampant throughout the nation in various states. The issue is also chronic in tribal areas which are largely unaffected by western influence.  What punishment do you think should be imparted to women filing false cases and should the rape law have a strong misuse clause ? Please comment your thoughts .  (This article will be updated with more news of false rapes as they come out . Please post links of finds in the comments area. )
