A woman from Maharashtra, who left her family to look for a job in Delhi, was allegedly repeatedly raped by a bus owner, who befriended her and offered to marry her, police said.

The woman from Amravati came to Delhi in search of a job. She met Rishi Raj, a private bus owner, who assured her help in getting a job.

The two developed friendship and Rishi Raj offered to marry her, and allegedly sexually exploited her several times. Later, he refused to marry her.

The woman Monday complained to police, who registered a case against Raj, said Superintendent of Police (City) Ashok Tripathi.

According to the police, both the woman and Rishi Raj were married before they met each other. The woman had two children and a husband whom she left to settle in Delhi for a job. Rishi Raj was also married.

"We have registered a case and are looking out for Rishi Raj," Tripathi said.
