Rape on the pretext of marriage:

Last year, the Delhi High Court had observed that having sexual intercourse on the false promise of marriage does not amount to rape if the complainant involves in physical intimacy over a long period of time. Justice Vibhu Bakhru said, “A promise of marriage cannot be held as an inducement for engaging in sex over a protracted and indefinite period of time.” The ruling came after the hearing of a complaint filed by a woman who has been in a physical relationship with a man for months.

As per the data released by National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), the maximum number of rape cases in Uttar Pradesh, about 57 per cent, were on the pretext of marriage. About 37 per cent of the accused persons in several rape cases reported in the state were known to the survivor. Only six per cent of perpetrators were unknown.
