Woman alleges rape by husband of business partner

GURUGRAM: A 38-year-old woman, owner of a garment shop, has lodged a complaint against the husband of her friend and business for blackmailing her with a video clip and raping her over a period of more than three years.
She claimed that on the first occasion, 40-year-old Deepak Arora lured her to his house and raped her after sedating her.

She said he also took obscene pictures and videos on that day. Later he raped her several times, saying that if she did not cooperate, he would upload the same on social media.

The woman and her friend would often go to Delhi to shop. On October 15, 2014, she and her friend’s husband went to Delhi and on their way back, he lured her to his home in Malibu Towne on Road. “I did not suspect anything when he offered me a drink. But he me and when I came to my senses, I realised I had been raped. Later when I resisted his advances, he threatened me, saying he had made videos and could upload it on social media,” said the woman.

Arora allegedly started blackmailing the woman and repeatedly raped her in hotels or his friends’ houses. Recently on August 10, he allegedly took her for a ride on the highway in his car.

“He again tried to me and when I resisted, he thrashed me. However, I somehow maanged to return home. After two days, I called my friend and told her everything but she also thrashed me. She was a good friend but she accused me even though her husband was the culprit. I got fed up and decided to lodge a complaint against him and finally moved police,” said the woman.

An FIR was registered against Arora under sections 376 (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC at the Sadar police station on Thursday. On Friday, the woman was produced in a city court and her statement recorded. “We are investigating. After verifying the facts, action will be taken,” said inspector Arjun Dhundhara, the SHO of Sadar police station.
