A 27-year-old woman has alleged that she was raped by a man on the pretext of marriage for six years, police said on Wednesday.

In her complaint, the woman alleged that accused Dev Bhattacharya raped her since 2009 on the pretext of marriage, they said.

The victim, a resident of Sector-29, said that Dev pressurised her to marry him after they met in 2009 but she turned down his proposal.

Later, he called the victim to his place in 2011 where he allegedly raped her. The two kept meeting after that and in 2012 the accused again raped her at his place when his mother had gone to Kolkata, police said.

The accused then went to Kolkata following his brother's death. When he returned, Dev broke all contacts with the woman and stopped talking to her, police said.

The victim then came to know that the accused was going to marry some other girl, over which she confronted his
mother, who said that her son was not interested in talking to her.

A case has been registered in this connection on Tuesday, police said, adding, the matter is being investigated.
