    In the meantime, the accused took the woman to a locality in Gujarat's Kutch district where the third accused allegedly raped her at his house, he said. The three accused also allegedly tried to sell the woman to a man for Rs 1.5 lakh and get her married to him. However, when she resisted their attempts, they beat her up, the official said quoting the woman's complaint.

    The woman managed to escape from the clutches of the accused and reached Mumbai on October 11 following which she lodged a complaint with the Kasturba Marg police in the metropolis.

    The complaint was later transferred to the Vasai police, he said. Based on the complaint, the Waliv police in Vasai division last evening registered offences under IPC sections 376 (rape), 366 (kidnapping, abducting or inducing woman to compel her marriage), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and other relevant provisions.
