A 28-year-old woman was today arrested for allegedly filing a fake gang rape complaint against a murder case witness and two others, police said.
She, reportedly, falsely implicated the 2013 murder case witness so that he couldn't testify before the court in Meerut.
SSP DC Dubey said after investigation it has been confirmed that there was no such case of gang rape with the woman.
Najakat, the accused in the murder case under Brahmpuri police station, is in jail. He and his friend Margub Ali wanted the prosecution witness, Salman alias Jawed, to desist from making statement against him in the court, the SSP said.
But when Salman did not comply they allegedly made this gangrape plot, the SSP said.
They took the help of the woman- a resident of Bhajanpura Khajuri in Delhi- and a certain Chand Parakash, the SSP said.
As per the plan, the woman acted as victim and Prakash her brother.
According to the woman's complaint, Salman made her consume 'lassi' after which she started to lose her conscious. She said that she found herself in the hospital bed when she regained conscious.
She then accused Salman and two of his other friends of raping her, the SSP said.
According to her medical report, the woman was admitted to the district hospital in unconscious state. But CCTV footage of the hospital shows the girls, accompanied by Magrub and Abdul, reached the hospital walking, the SSP said.
Chand Prakash and two others were arrested yesterday in connection with the case, he said.
A doctor of district hospital and a pharmacist are also found to be part of the conspiracy and they will be arrested soon, the SSP added.
