It was the perfect plot to settle scores. At one hand, the conspirators wanted to be in news and on the other hand, take revenge from an old enemy (Ved Prakash).

The incident was reported on the Eve of New Year when a woman, mother of three and resident of Nand Nagri, lodged a complaint with the police that Ved Prakesh raped her after tying her three kids.

The woman was, thereafter, sent for medical examination where the forensic experts confirmed rape and subsequently a case was registered. Usually, when such a case is registered, the accused person is arrested and then the investigations are carried out.

But, in this case the police got suspicious after they discovered that Ravi (the man she was living-in with and called him her husband) seemed to be too keen to attract media attention rather than pursuing the case with the police.

Both 'husband' and wife and their kids were questioned and only then the police could discover the truth.

According to sources, Ravi informed the cops that he along with his friend Ram Karan had hatched the conspiracy to nail Ved Prakash (their old enemy) in the rape case. Both Ram Karan and Ved Prakash hail from Saboli village and had some property dispute.

Further investigation revealed that the woman, who hails from Bihar, had been living with Ravi in Nand Nagri along with her three children. Ram Karan, who is a friend of Ravi somehow convinced him that he had an ambitious plan.

At first he wanted to settle his scores with Ved Prakash, with whom he has some property dispute and to enable Ravi to shoot into prominence. He convinced Ravi that once TV channels come to know of the sensational rape case, every one would die to get a sound byte of him.

As planned, Ravi tied the kids, had sex with the woman and sent her to the police station to lodge a complaint. Meanwhile, he started contacting the leading news channels.

Police registered a rape case after the forensic experts confirmed of rape, but during investigations the entire story bounced. The woman was produced before the magistrate and her statement was recorded.

Subsequently, police swung into action and arrested Ram Karan and is on the lookout for Ravi, who is absconding.
