A Sonepat court has awarded 10-day imprisonment to a 20-year-old woman who had levelled allegations of gangrape against four men for backtracking on her statement.
While delivering the verdict on Tuesday, additional district and sessions judge Manisha Batra also imposed a fine of Rs. 500 on her.
The alleged victim, a married woman from Banwasa village under the Baroda police station near Gohana, had alleged that on September 28, four men abducted her from the outskirts of Banwasa, her parents' village, and took her to Panipat, where they raped her for four days before letting her go. Acting on her complaint, the police arrested the four men, who are in their early 20s, a few days later.
The woman's in-laws are based in Adiana village of Panipat district.
