The victim of the high-profile rape case, which created a rift between two senior officers of the Gurgaon police, accused joint commissioner of police (JCP) Bharti Arora of tarnishing her reputation in the media.
The woman approached the National Commission for Women (NCW) on Sunday against Arora, alleging that she had shielded the accused. Arora also misused her powers to pressurise the witnesses and submitted a biased report in favour of the accused who happens to be the son of a retired IAS officer, the woman said in her written complaint to the NCW.
“Arora has imputed my character in public by revealing my name, (which is contempt of court) and called me a schemer and an extortionist. The documents I shared with the media are an answer to her baseless allegations and it proves my innocence. It also shows how the joint commissioner has use defamatory language to safeguard her ACR. She has gone beyond her role to malign my reputation,” the victim said.
She also said it was only after her complaints to the chief minister and Haryana director general of police that the matter was taken seriously by the Gurgaon police department. The victim further alleged that on the day when her case was listed for hearing in the Punjab and Haryana high court, Arora and the accused told the media that she had intimate relations with Gurgaon commissioner of police Navdeep Singh Virk.
The victim has requested the chairperson of NCW to act against Arora. “This is a crisis situation for me. They are influential people,” the woman said to the NCW.
