“The accused and the woman took the same car from the airport on Monday evening. While the man got off at a mall in Malad, the woman went home to Kandivli. She dropped off her luggage and went back to the mall as the two had decided to meet at a bar,” said a police officer, who did not wish to be named.

According to the woman’s statement, the two chatted over drinks till 1.30am. “The man offered to take her to his apartment in Andheri, as she was too drunk to go back home,” said the officer. Police said the woman told them when they reached the accused’s apartment, there were two men flatmates and a woman friend of his present in the house.

The woman claims the accused raped her in the night while she was in an inebriated state.

“Her father and boyfriend tried contacting her, but as they did not get a response,” said the officer.

According to the case remand copy, which HT has accessed, the boyfriend tracked her down to a food joint in Andheri around 11am on Tuesday, and when he reached the place, the woman was with the accused. “The boyfriend took her home, where her father asked her about the injury marks on her body. She told her father that she had been raped,” said the officer, adding that the woman’s father then took her to KEM Hospital, where the police were called in.
