Madhya Pradesh High Court held that held that in the present circumstances, the prosecution of the petitioner for the offences under Sections 376(2)(N), 506 and 34 of IPC will amount to abuse of process of law.
The Allahabad High Court had directed the Astrology Department of Lucknow University to determine if the alleged rape victim is a Mangalik, after the accused refused to marry her due to her Mangal Dosh.
At this stage of bail, it can hardly be said with any conviction that the promise of marriage made by the petitioner to the prosecutrix is ex-facie false; and that it has been made in bad faith, with no intention of being adhered to when it was given.
Madhya Pradesh High Court observed that “Only a false promise to marry made with an intention to deceive a woman would vitiate the woman’s consent being obtained under misconception of fact, but mere breach of promise cannot be said to be a false promise.”
