“Neha, a resident of Kerala, had joined the guest house on July 31. Her father is a retired nayak in the Indian Army. The accused forcibly entered the victim's room on the fifth floor, taking advantage of the fact that she was alone, and raped her. The victim is in trauma.

The police said Ravi has no role in the incident.
“The accused will be produced in the district court on Friday. We have recorded the victim’s statement. We will also inform the Air Force about the incident,” said Maheshwar Dayal, DCP, East Gurgaon.
