#Mumbai: After 25 years, the Bombay High Court acquitted a man from Palghar. One woman accused the man of having sex with her for a long time, promising to marry her, and then never married again. The young man was released from that charge. The court also ruled that there was no evidence to suggest that the woman had engaged in sexual intercourse with the man on the basis of a promise.
