India: Police officer forced to marry his girlfriend

Story here. Excerpt:

'An IPS officer, who was accused of raping a woman on the pretext of marriage, was acquitted of all the charges after he tied the knot with the complainant.

IPS officer Lohit Matani, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) in Nagpur, was booked in Indore on the charges of allegedly raping a woman on the pretext of marriage on December 22, 2015.

According to information, the case was earlier registered by the victim at Jabalpur police station and was later transferred to Indore's Tukoganj police station, where the alleged incident occurred. The victim, who was preparing for UPSC exams back then, had alleged that she got in touch with him on social media website and was later invited to Indore for help. However, Lohit raped her on the false promise of marriage for a few days on various locations they travelled together.

She alleged that he refused marriage when approached by her parents. Therefore, she lodged a police complaint but requested to withdrew it days later as Matani agreed to tie the knot.'
