A day after a 25-year-old woman was allegedly thrown out of a moving black Mercedes car in DLF City, the accused still remains at large. The accused, identified as Narender Mehlawat, is understood to be associated with the real estate business and has political ties.
The city police have formed two teams to search for Mehlawat. Several raids have also been conducted at his native village Gadholi too.
On Tuesday, police produced the victim before court to get her statement registered before the judge. "The accused is on run after the incident came to light. However, we have acquired necessary information about him. According to the victim’s statement, she knew him for the past two months. He used to visit her office also. The accused is a friend of her company proprietor," a senior police official who requested not to be identified.
The officer added, "On Monday, she went from her office to meet him at Iffco Chowk. Both spent more than six hours together. They also went to Mehfil restaurant in Sector 56 among other places."
After recording her statement, the victim went to her relative’s home in Delhi and informed her younger brother at her Gurgaon residence.
However, the police are still not confident about the story narrated by the victim.
"It seems that she was not thrown out from the moving car. We will also examine her call details to get leads about the incident," said a police official.
On the other hand, there were no women police constables when she was rushed to the hospital on Monday night.
The victim, who hails from Bihar, was allegedly thrown out of the vehicle around 10pm.
She was injured and was first rushed to Paras Hospital and then shifted to the Civil Hospital.
She stays in a rented accommodation in Sector 4 and was working with a real estate firm.
According to the police, she was planning to shift to a new place and had gone with the accused to look for a new rented accommodation. However, when Mehlawat attempted to rape her, she fell out of the car in the N block area of DLF Phase 2.
With the kind of injuries suffered by the victim, police suspect that she was not thrown out of a moving car. The ensuing struggle may have pushed her out of the car.
A case has been registered against Mehlawat under IPC sections 376 and 511.
