‘Armyman’ booked for raping student on marriage pretext

LUDHIANA: The police have booked a 25-year-old “Armyman” on the price of raping a pupil on the pretext of marriage.

The accused — Abhimanyu, alias Mannu — is allegedly a resident of Army Cantonment in Jalandhar.

The 22-year-old girl stated in her police complaint, “Abhimanyu, a native of Kaithal in Haryana, used to ship me messages thru WhatsApp. I have no idea from where he were given my number. One day, he referred to as me up and introduced himself as an Armyman. He stated he wanted to marry me. Days later, he made his parents talk to mine.”

In August 2018, Abhimanyu threatened to kill himself if she did not marry him. “He then got here to Ludhiana and requested me to fulfill him. When I met him, he took me alongside to Jalandhar and evolved bodily family members with me after promising marriage. Thereafter, he violated me a number of other instances,” the Ludhiana district resident added.

When the complainant went to Vaishno Devi shrine in Katra on March 27, Abhimanyu came to visit her. “When I requested him to marry me, he refused. I then realised I were cheated,” the nursing pupil stated.

The survivor then approached the police, who booked Abhimanyu below sections 366 (kidnapping, abducting or inducing girl to compel her marriage, and many others), 376 (2) (rape) and 506 (legal Intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code.

Investigating officer sub-inspector Manjeet Kaur stated, “The scientific examination of the complainant was once performed at civil clinic. A manhunt has been introduced to arrest the accused, who was once booked on Sunday night time.”

Sudhar SHO sub-inspector Ajaib Singh stated, “The survivor instructed us that the accused works in Army. We gets extra information about him, together with his designation and unit, after his arrest. His unit may also be informed. It is being investigated how the accused were given the survivor’s mobile phone number and whether or not he's an Armyman.”
