Sentinel Digital Desk

GHAZIABAD: UP Police addressed a press conference on Thursday to announce that the case of the alleged gang rape in Ghaziabad was fake and aimed to frame the accused due to a property dispute. Three men were arrested by the police following the accusation by the woman that five men had gang-raped her.

In the early morning of October 18, Nandgram police station received information that a woman was lying on Ashram Road. The police immediately reached the spot and took the woman to the hospital. The woman told the police that she was abducted and gang raped by five people she was already acquainted with. She had named Dinu, Shahrukh, Javed, Dhola, and Aurangzeb alias Jahir in the case. And based on this statement, four of them were arrested immediately.

The accuser claimed that she was returning to Delhi after attending a birthday party in Ghaziabad on Sunday and her brother had dropped her off at a bus stand. When she was waiting for the bus, a car approached and five men dragged her into it. They took her to an undisclosed location and allegedly raped her, mentioned her statement to the police.

The police detained the woman's friend Azad and his two friends Gaurav and Afzal. On interrogation, the arrested people confessed that it was a fake case.

In the press conference, Meerut Range IG Praveen Kumar said, "This is one of its kind conspiracy that these people have hatched. The collaborative evidence and the results of the forensic and medical investigations are found to be logically concurrent with the confessional statements given by these persons during the investigations. Therefore, things have become clear now."

According to reports, a man named Azad transferred money to a man to give more publicity to the rape case. After the woman went missing, Azad's mobile was also switched off and when it was turned on, his location was the same as where the woman was found lying. Azad had taken the woman with his friends and she stayed with them for 2 days. The accuser had claimed that she was abducted and gang-raped for two days by five men. The car in which she went was also recovered by the police.

The accuser was first taken to a government hospital in Ghaziabad for a medical examination and then asked to go to Meerut. But she had refused to undergo the medical examination at both places. On her insistence, she was admitted to GTB Hospital in Delhi. An investigation later revealed that the victim had hatched this conspiracy with her friends to implicate 5 people against whom she is already fighting a property dispute.
