BALLIA:A 23-year-old woman has levelled allegations of rape against her live-in partner, who refused to marry her after she got pregnant, police said on Wednesday.

The woman met Amit Maurya of Vijaynagar in 2019 after which they started living together in Ballia, Station House Officer DK Pathak said.

The man established physical relations with her on promise of marriage, she complained.

The woman has been sent for medical examination, he added.
