A case of breach of promise rather than false promise to marry: Madras High Court

Justice AD Jagadish Chandira referred to a number of case laws on the offences of cheating, rape, and cohabitation or sexual intercourse by a man deceitfully inducing a belief of lawful marriage to render his finding in the case.

"It seems to be a case of breach of promise rather than a case of false promise to marry ... there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that at the initial stage itself the accused had no intention whatsoever of, keeping his promise to marry and that the false promise was made only to satisfy the lust," the Court said.

Cases Reffered:
Anurag Soni Vs. The State of Chhattisgarh, Deepak Gulati v. State of Haryana and Tilak Raj v. State of Himachal Pradesh.
