Deposing before the court in the infamous rape on wheels case, industrialist MK Jain claimed that, “I was falsely implicated in the rape case owing to the property dispute.”
Industrialist Jain made this statement while testifying before the court of additional district and sessions judge Rakesh Kumar Yadav on Friday. The court deferred the hearing of the case to August 6.
In August 2002, the police had registered a case against former UT home secretary NK Jain and four others for conspiring to frame Sector 8-based businessman MK Jain in a rape case.
The case had hit the headlines when a Shimla-based woman had alleged that MK Jain had raped her in a moving car while she was being taken by the industrialist to Panchkula on the pretext of giving her a job.
According to the complaint, the victim had alleged that MK Jain had picked her up from a computer centre in Sector 20. She had alleged that the industrialist raped her after giving her a soft drink laced with intoxicant. She was later dumped near the Sector-33 petrol pump.
However, during the investigations it came to the light that the former home secretary had tried to implicate MK Jain in connivance with a few others in a false case as the woman had not been raped.
It is learnt that victim has number of times changed her statement.
On August 7, 2010, the court had framed charges under sections 376-G (gangrape), 389 (putting person in fear of accusation of offence in order to commit extortion), 328 (causing hurt by means of poison), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC against NK Jain, Ram Lal, Surinder Sharma, Baldev Kumar and Narvir Singh.
