Breach of promise to marry not cheating under Section 420 IPC: Karnataka High Court

Justice K Natarajan quashed an FIR against a man and his family, holding that a breach of promise to marry does not constitute an offence of cheating under Sections 417 and 420 of the IPC.

… continuing the proceedings or investigation against the petitioners is an abuse of process law” the single-Judge thus observed.

The complainant had filed a case, alleging that she met the man 8 years ago, they both fell in love and he agreed to marry her. However, as his family supported his marriage with another woman, he left the complainant and married the other woman instead.
