Can I file a case against my boyfriend who promised me to marry and then lied to me by giving family reasons?

Can I file a case against my bf who promised me to marry and then lied to me by giving family reasons and made conversation or situation along with me in such a way that I attempted to do suicide? Even while fighting on a topic we had some conflict and it tends to break my leg ligament and got fractured, after 3months on bed rest surgery also was going through even still not going through depression and anxiety.

He avoids to talk and also blocked contact his parents so that I can’t convey them my emotions and situation. Throughout the year just making me false statement that he is trying to convince his parents for marriage, lied me many times and also stressed in messages by saying my mental situation is not good I am mentally psychic. After all of these, I am consulting a psychiatric from three months and I get many times anxiety attacks. My issue is this thing lay down me with bad physical and mental pain, sleepless night and attempt to suicide because of mental pressure and a fake promise of marriage.

I want justice to make people understand that no one has the right to use any girl and play with her mental situation. Please guide me! My parents are both handicapped and I have been so strong till now but making marriage promises and then faking with me is the hardest thing strong women can take off. I want justice please guide, please.

Question from: Tamil Nadu

It infers from the facts of your case that he has made a false promise of marriage and exploited you emotionally and physically. In these conditions, you can file a criminal case against him. He has committed the offence of cheating and grievous hurt.

Your boyfriend had no intention to marry when he promised. He has been avoiding to keep relation with you and making false excuses. These acts prove that he has not been willing to fulfil his promise since the beginning. When he lacks such commitment therefore he has committed the offence of cheating.

He caused you bodily injury and made you live in a traumatic situation. This act also constitutes the offence of grievous hurt. Hence you can also prosecute him for the offence of grievous hurt punishable under section 325 of the India Penal Code. You have to file an FIR against him under section 325, 417 and 109 of the Indian Penal Code.
