Some of the important cases are, a young resident of Neredmet made his classmate believe that he would marry her in the name of love. When she was alone, the accused went and sexually assaulted her on the pretext of marriage. When she asked him about marriage, he said that he was not interested, he would not marry, blocked her number and got engaged to another girl.
