A 24-year old woman, who came to Gurugram for an examination, was allegedly sexually assaulted by a cousin in a hotel. The police have confirmed the news.
The incident occurred on September 22 but was reported to police on Saturday when the victim, a resident of Mahendragarh, filed a complaint in her local police station.
Gurugram police PRO Subhash Bokan said, “following the zero FIR with other sections registered in Mahendragarh, it was on Sunday transferred to the Woman Police Station in Gurugram. The investigation is in initial stages and the victim’s statement has been recorded.”
As per the police, the victim came to Gurugram from her native place to appear in an examination. At the examination centre, she met her distant cousin who persuaded her to stay with him in a hotel near the city bus stand.
However, during night, when she was sleeping, the accused forcibly sexually assaulted her. He later threatened her with dire consequences if she disclosed the incident to anyone.
The police also added, “as the exam was on the day after, the victim didn’t disclose her ordeal to her family. She gave the exam and returned to her native place. Having passed some days in extreme trauma, she then informed her family members.”
“We are probing the crime. The accused will be nabbed soon,” he added.
