A young man accuses his ex-boyfriend of having transmitted HIV / AIDS to him. In his complaint to the police, the 25-year-old said he lived with the latter for a year. But they ended up breaking up.
However, the accused, a resident of Riambel, called the young man to confess that he was infected with HIV / AIDS.
The opinion of a lawyer was requested on this subject. Me Siddhartha Hawoldar maintains that this is a criminal act, especially if the partner is aware of his HIV status.
“First of all, it must be clarified whether the facts were carried out knowingly or by innocent error. If a person has HIV / AIDS and has sex with their partner without any protection, it is in effect putting their life at risk. The person in question will be charged with ‘recklessness’, which is considered a criminal act and is punishable, ”said the lawyer.
