The third witness in the rape trial of Nitendra Bilash said in court that the rape victim was not a person of good character as she used to wear short skirts and tight jeans.
Arun Lata is a tenant at Bilash’s house in Nabua.
During the cross examination, Lata told the court that it does not look good when the girl wears short skirts and tight jeans.
She was then asked again if she was making up stories to cover for Bilash.
Lata told the court that she is not making up any stories for Bilash as she pays rent and her landlord is not keeping her there for free.
It is alleged that Bilash raped a 16-year-old girl at his residence in Nabua on 22nd July, 2013.
Suva High Court Judge Justice Vincent Perera will sum up the case at 2.30pm today.
