Delhi woman misuses rape law, held for extortion
A woman, who has filed 11 cases of rape, stalking and other sexual offences, has been now arrested on charges of extortion by the Delhi Police. She faces four cases of extortion, theft and cheating.
The extortion angle came up in the case when a person, who has been accused by the women of committing rape, himself complained against the woman.
False case complaint
The Delhi Police received a complaint from Sushil Kumar of East Delhi on March 28. He had alleged extortion by the woman, claiming that she had falsely implicated him in a case of rape that was registered against him on February 19.
Sushil says that he had befriended the woman three months ago. He told police that the woman told him that a case of rape against her husband was pending before the Karkardooma court and asked him to lend Rs 10,000 on the pretext of paying the court fee.
Money cause of dispute
Sushil gave her the money. A month later, Sushil asked her to return the money. When Sushil went to her house, the woman, he claimed in his official statement to the police, threatened to implicate him in a false rape case, assaulted him, snatched his mobile phone and Rs 5,000.
She then dragged him to the police station, where she registered a case under Section 376 of the IPC, following which Sushil was sent to jail.
He was released on bail in March and Sushil filed an application in court requesting that his statement be recorded.
It was false case, admit cops
The police now admit that the rape case against Sushil was false. Additional DCP (East) D K Gupta told the Indian Express that "the previous case under Sections of rape that the woman registered against Sushil was found to be false. On the directions of the court, a case of extortion based on Sushil's complaint was registered and the woman, arrested. She has been sent to 14 days judicial custody."
The woman is so brazen that she had threatened Sushil's lawyer, R K Choudhary that she would implicate him as well if he sought bail for Sushil.
Women takes on lawyer, husband
On March 19, the woman registered a case of rape, criminal intimidation and wrongful confinement against Choudhary, and three others including her husband Avtar Singh, alleging that they had raped her inside the lawyer's chamber in Patiala House courts complex.
CCTV exposes her lie
Sushil's lawsyer says that "in her complaint, the woman claimed that the incident took place between 6.30 pm and 7.30 pm. However, when police investigated the matter, the woman's location was found to be at the Karkardooma court complex at 7 pm. It was confirmed through CCTV footage."
