Sabbir Sheikh Vs. The State and another
The facts of non-reporting about the alleged marriage by the accused-appellant to the concerned Nikah Registrar under section 5(2) of Muslim Marriages and divorces (Registration) Act, 1974, making sexual relationship with the informant with her consent pretending to be his valid wife and his subsequent refusal to recognize the marriage ipso facto suggest that the accused-appellant had an initial intention to deceive her and to fulfil his ill desire he made sexual relationship with the informant in the name of a fake marriage. The above fact also suggests that the accused appellant with a false promise to register the marriage intentionally mislead the victim and convinced her with a falsehood for obtaining her consent to make sexual intercourse with him which is obviously a “deceitful means” as per the Explanation of section 9(1) of the Ain, 2000 and thus, he prima facie committed offence of rape punishable under section 9(1) of Nari-O-Shishu Nirjatan Daman Ain, 2000.
