NAVY MAN RAPES 19YEAROLD GIRL ON PRETEXT OF MARRIAGE
GURUGRAM A 25-year-old man serving in the Indian Navy was booked on Thursday night for allegedly raping a 19-year-old woman on the pretext of marriage for over a year, the police said on Friday.
The woman, in her complaint, told the police that she is a resident of old Gurugram and has been working with a private company in the city for the last one year. She met the accused, a resident of Jhajjar, through her relative in 2016.
According to her complaint, the accused befriended her and started messaging her. They met a couple of times when he came to the city on leave. The accused proposed her for marriage and she readily agreed.
“According to the woman , on January 15, 2018, the accused called her to meet him in a city hotel and allegedly raped her, saying that they are going to get married soon. He told her that he has already spoken to his parents about her, and will take her to his village soon,” Sumit Kuhar, deputy commissioner of police (crime) said.
The police said the accused took the woman for shopping whenever he visited her during his leaves, and even introduced her to his friends as his wife.
The accused also took her to his village and even introduced her to his parents and relatives.
“In March this year, the accused booked tickets for her to visit him in Port Blair, where he is currently posted. They lived together in a rented flat for almost a week, and he promised her that they will get married when he is visited Gurugram on his next leave,” Kuhar said.
The victim in her complaint alleged that ever since she returned from Port Blair, his behaviour changed and he started ignoring her. Last week, when the victim called him from a different mobile number, he threatened her and told her that he is getting married to someone else and asked her not to contact him again. The accused was booked under sections 376 (2) (n) and 506 of the IPC at the city police station.
