A young call centre employee in New Delhi has accused her husband and his friend of attempting to rape her in a moving car after which both of them were arrested, police said on Monday.
The woman, said to be in her early 20s, lodged the complaint with South Delhi police claiming that the two had tried to rape her when they were returning after work from neighbouring Gurgaon on Sunday night.
The victim, mother of a one-year-old boy, claimed that when she resisted the rape attempt by her husband Kamal and his friend Saurav Kataria they dropped her at her in-laws' house in Sheikh Sarai in Malviya Nagar.
She also accused her brother-in-law of threatening her of dire consequences if she revealed the incident to anybody or approached the police.
According to police, the woman got married to Kamal nearly two years ago against the wishes of her family and their marital life had been on the rocks with regular fights and differences of opinion.
She is admitted to the trauma centre in the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi. The woman and her husband work in different call centres.
Police have registered a case against the two under relevant sections of the IPC.
