A 26-year-old German woman who was allegedly raped by the son of an Orissa cadre IPS officer at a hotel in Alwar on Monday night returned to Delhi on Wednesday accompanied by a compatriot, a senior police official said.
A German man approached the Kotwali police with the request to allow him to escort the woman to Delhi, SP Rajesh Arya told PTI.
On Tuesday police intercepted a New Delhi-bound inter-city train at Khairtal station and arrested accused B H Mohanty while he was returning with the victim from Jaipur.
Mohanty was produced before a local court, which remanded him to 15 days judicial custody. He was being interrogated, Arya said adding that a challan would be produced after recording statements of both parties which could take two or three days. However, the preliminary probe was over, he said.
However, the accused, son of an Orissa cadre Additional Director-General of police B B Mohanty, has confessed to his involvement in the matter saying he had intercourse with the woman, Arya claimed.
Medical reports of both the victim and the accused were procured by the Kotwali police.
The incident occurred at a local hotel where the two had lodged for the night after dinner on Monday night. Alwar police was intimated about the matter after the woman sent a number of text messages from her mobile phone, alleging rape, to a relative in Berlin who got in touch with the German embassy in New Delhi.
This is the second case of alleged rape of an overseas woman tourist in Rajasthan. A German tourist was raped by an autorickshaw driver and his colleague in Jodhpur last year.
