A 27-year-old BPO employee in Gurgaon on Thursday claimed she was gangraped by two persons, including a colleague, in a moving car only to make a complete turnaround before a magistrate later.

The DLF City Phase 2 police filed an FIR on Thursday morning. Later in the afternoon, the woman changed her statement in the court of a duty magistrate, saying she had levelled the charges as she was stressed.

The woman is a resident of Madangir in Delhi.

In the FIR, the woman had alleged that she had boarded a cab, a WagonR, at 7 pm on Wednesday near her office. An employee of the same company was already in the cab, she said.

After moving around for 20 minutes, the company employee allegedly took out a pistol and 'assaulted' her, she said. He then exchanged seats with the driver, who too raped her.

Gurgaon police commissioner Alok Mittal said as the woman withdrew the rape charges, not much was left in the case. "However, we are investigating the sequence of events she had narrated," he said. The police said the location given by the woman in her FIR was false. She was also reluctant to get her medical examination done.
