In a new twist in the alleged gangrape of the 20-year-old girl in Meerut, the Uttar Pradesh Police has claimed that this may be a case of a relationship gone wrong. The police believe that there are several discrepancies in the account of the complainant.
UP Police has alleged that the girl was in a relationship with a man named Kaleem and contrary to what she claimed, she underwent an abortion in Meerut and was not forced to have one.
The victim had claimed that she was taken to a Madarsa in Hapur and raped and forced to convert to Islam, and that she was forced to have an abortion. Three people have arrested in this case so far.
A team of the UP State Women Commission on Thursday met the 20-year-old girl who was allegedly raped and forcibly converted to another religion at Sarawa village in Kharkhauda area. Chairperson of the commission Zarina Usmani said she inquired about the incident from the victim, her family members and also local residents.
The victim said that she was abducted on July 23 and taken to Hapur where she was gangraped. She said that she was later shifted to Muzaffarnagar from where she managed to escape. She said, “I was first taken to a Madrasa in Hapur and later moved to Muzaffarnagar. There were many other girls there but I couldn’t meet them.”
