The accused Pritesh and the complainant woman were in love since the past three years. When the families of both came to know about the love affair, the accused Pritesh and the woman told their families that they were planning to marry.

The accused established physical relations with her several times for three years on the promise of marriage. In the meantime, Pritesh went to Chennai for bank job.

The woman also went there and both started staying together in live-in relationship. But after some days, skirmishes started erupting between Pritesh and his live-in partner.
