(2.) As per prosecution case, the accused/respondent No. 2 was the neighbor of the victim and he used to visit the house of the victim very often and developed a relationship with the victim. The respondent No. 2 was also engaged in physical relationship with the victim forcibly and consequently the victim became pregnant. When the respondent No. 2 was informed about the pregnancy of the victim, the respondent No. 2 promised to marry her. But later on, he started avoiding the victim. The mother of the victim informed the father of the respondent No. 2, who initially assured to settle the matter, but did not take any step. The informant along with the victim went to the house of the respondent No. 2 to discuss the matter, but the respondent No. 2 and his father misbehaved them and had driven out them from the house.
