Gurgaon deputy mayor again booked for rape

Gurgaon, Jan 20 (IANS) Gurgaon’s deputy mayor Parminder Kataria has been booked for the second time on charges of raping a divorcee after promising to marry her, police said on Wednesday. The woman had filed a similar complaint in October last year.

The woman said she had filed a rape complaint on December 11, 2015, against Kataria at the women police station here, but alleged that police refused to register the case.

The case was registered after the woman’s lawyer Pradeep Kumar sent legal notice to Gurgaon’s Deputy Commissioner of Police Deepak Saharan for contempt of the Supreme Court’s directions.

The woman alleged that Kataria visited her house in December and again sexually assaulted her.

On October 24, 2015, the woman had filed a case of rape and criminal intimidation against Kataria and two others.

Later, on December 1, she filed an affidavit in the district court, saying she has known to Kataria and his family and did not want any action against them.

Kataria has currently been granted an interim bail.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Dharna Yadav said the woman has changed her statements many times since the first FIR was registered.

“She has alleged that the accused came to her house and raped her again in December. We are investigating the case,” the police official said.
