A 24-year-old woman alleged that her father-in-law, who is deputed in the home guards department, raped her. She also alleged that her husband and mother-in-law provoked him to outrage her modesty.

The woman further alleged that her mother-in-law also wanted to push her into prostitution and forced her to maintain physical relations with others.

Following the statement of the woman, the police on Monday registered a case of rape against the home guard, a resident of the Basti Jodhewal area, his wife and their son.

In her complaint, the woman stated that she was got married around a year ago. Soon after their marriage, her relations with her husband turned strained and they filed a divorce petition in court on August 14 and she moved to her parents’ home. Later, her husband came and took her along with him to his house saying that he will try to maintain a cordial relationship with her.

“After reaching home, my husband’s attitude changed dramatically. He forced me to maintain physical relations with my father-in-law to which I refused. Later, on August 28, my father-in-law barged in my room and raped me,” the victim alleged.

“When I complained about it to my mother-in-law, she threatened me to keep quiet. She forced me to maintain physical relations with others also. She wanted to push me in prostitution,” she alleged.

Inspector Hardeep Singh, station house officer of the Basti Jodhewal police station, said the police have registered a case after receiving the complaint. The police were investigating in the matter and would arrest the accused soon.
