In the Hindustan Times: Man jailed for deceit

A man is jailed for living with a woman for 9 years, while she believed they were married, and then forcing her out of the house, saying she wasn’t his wife:

The man was jailed under Section 493 of IPC , which prescribes upto 10 years in jail for: “Cohabitation caused by a man deceitfully inducing a belief of lawful marriage”

The question the Supreme Court faced was: does this action attract penal provisions? The court decided it did.
