A 25-year old woman on Monday lodged a complaint of gangrape by a youth and his associate in Lake Town on March 9. The complaint was lodged with a senior police official of Bidhannagar Commissionerate after Lake Town police allegedly declined to receive a complaint on the day the incident occurred.
Police have detained two people in this connection but the main accused, Gulshan Kumar Choudhury, is still not arrested.
According to police sources, Choudhury telephoned the victim and asked her to come to his flat on March 9, allegedly threatening to upload her objectionable photographs on the internet if she didn’t comply.
The woman went to his flat where she was forced to consume some drinks laced with drugs. She fell unconscious and after regaining awareness, she found that she was raped and was surrounded by the accused and one of his associates.
She then narrated the matter to her family members who went to two police stations where the officers refused to receive a complaint. Finally, the victim’s family went to the office of the ADCP Bidhannagar, and lodged a complaint of gang rape.
Debasish Dhar, ADCP, Bidhannagar Commissionerate reportedly formed a team to look into the allegation against some police officers who had allegedly denied to take a complaint from the victim.
“Investigations are on and the law will take its own course,” Dhar told media.
