The research was initiated in May 2021 and completed by April 2022. Quantitative and qualitative analysis of the judgments was undertaken to gain an in-depth understanding of the manner in which “romantic” cases enter the criminal justice system, the profile of informants and “victims”, nature of charges applied in such cases, and the trends in testimony of the “victims” and its correlation with the outcomes. The analysis also focuses on the diverse approaches taken by the Special Courts in such cases, particularly their views on consent by minors.
