A 20-year-old former air hostess was allegedly raped by a ‘friend’ for around three months at her residences in sectors 27 and 45. A case has been registered at Sector 39 police station and investigation initiated.
Ajay Kumar Singh, the station house officer of Sector 39 police station, said,“We have registered a case of rape but have made no arrest. The case is being investigated to verify the allegations levelled in the complaint. The woman and the accused knew each other and the matter has to be thoroughly probed.”
The police said that the woman is a resident of Bahraich in Uttar Pradesh and was employed with a private airline. She left her job six months ago to pursue a course in international commerce management in a Delhi college.
The woman, in her complaint, alleged that the accused, who is 22-years-old, initially stalked her when she went to a gym in Sector 45. He learnt her details and sent a request of Facebook, which the woman accepted after frequent exchange of messages, the police said.
The woman and the accused developed a friendship, and the accused also befriended the woman’s 13-year-old brother. The accused also used to visit the woman’s residence.
The woman stated in her complaint, “I thought he is a nice person as my younger brother developed a good bond with him. He wanted to have a physical relationship with me but I always refused. Over a period of time, we became friends and he too stayed in his boundaries.”
The woman alleged that the accused had visited her home in May with a soft drink, to celebrate the victory of a relative in an election, which was laced with sedatives. The woman alleged that she and her brother became unconscious.
“He raped me and I was unable to resist. I woke up in the midnight and called him to inquire about the incident. He said that he had left the house after providing the soft drink. When I threatened him of lodging a complaint, he threatened that my pictures would go viral. I got scared when I saw the pictures.”
She further stated, “I was shocked to see the pictures, which were taken by someone else. After that, he continued to rape me. Even after I shifted my residence to Sector 27, he continued to visit me. There are marks on my body as I tried to resist his attempts. I wanted him to marry me as I was constantly being blackmailed.”
The woman said that she had also called the father of the accused and told him that his son should marry her, but he had replied that he would get her married to someone else.
