During the hearing in the Apex Court on Monday, Chief Justice of India S.A. Bobde asked a 23-year-old Maharashtra government servant, who was accused of raping a minor girl whether he would marry the victim.

The court, however, made it clear that it is not pressuring the accused to marry the minor victim. Since, the accused had promised that if the girl turns adult then he will marry her, but he did not in result of which a rape complaint was filed against him.

The court later granted the accused an interim protection from arrest for four weeks during which he can seek bail from the sessions court.
