The Kaithal police arrested two youth on Tuesday evening for allegedly gangraping a 19-year-old married woman at Kalayat town, near here.
However, the district police claim that the circumstantial evidences and investigations rule out the possibility of a gangrape and that she had illicit relations with both the accused since long.
As per the complaint, the woman had gone out to answer nature’s call, but was abducted by Rakesh and Pawan on October 8. She was allegedly raped in a room in the town before she was dumped at the village street in the evening.
A police complaint was made on Tuesday and the accused were arrested last evening.
Meanwhile, superintendent of police Kuldeep Singh told Hindustan Times on Wednesday that scrutiny of call details of the woman’s mobile phone confirm that she was regularly in touch with both the accused over phone for the past several weeks including, minutes before she was alleged kidnapped.
“Victim alleged that she was kidnapped around 4am on October 8 whereas her phone details revealed that a call was made to Rakesh from her mobile phone at 3.20am,” he said.
Singh said that probably the trio were seen by someone in an objectionable situation and she cooked up a story.
However, the SP clarified that following a specific allegation, both were arrested on rape charges. He said that during prosecution the phone call details and other evidences would be put forward in the court.
“After the accused told the investigators that they had illicit relations with the woman and that she herself had called up Rakesh on Monday morning to come to him, we checked her phone call details and got the conclusion of the case,” said the SP.
He further added that contrary to the allegations of being abducted, she was frequently making calls from her mobile phone to various persons known to her till Tuesday evening, but did not speak about the incident to anyone.
“The alleged victim is unable to give a satisfactory reply on call detail issue that why she called up Rakesh in the early morning and if she was kidnapped then how she was allowed to make calls from the illegal confinement, but did not ask for help,” said the SP.
He said that the woman had married few months back, but was not staying with her husband for some unspecified reason.
"The medical examination of the alleged victim stated that she was five-month pregnant" SP added.
