NEW DELHI: A 27-year-old man has been arrested on the complaint of his live-in partner who has alleged that he had been raping her for the past seven years on the pretext of marrying her.
The woman, a call centre employee who belongs to the northeast, lived with Ashwin at a rented accommodation in the Shakarpur area of east Delhi. “Around seven years ago, Ashwin met the girl in Darjeeling. They fell in love and decided to live together in Delhi. They joined the same call centre. The couple even has a four-year-old child,” said a police source.
The woman’s statement says that the couple broke up for a while after which she went to Dubai along with the child. After spending a year in Dubai, she returned to Delhi and started living in the Safdarjung area. However, she patched up with Ashwin and he promised to marry her. Convinced by the promise, she moved in with him again.
However, the woman approached the police when Ashwin refused to marry her. Her medical report confirmed rape. An FIR under Section 376 of IPC was registered against Ashwin at Shakarpur police station.
