Police here have booked a man for allegedly raping a 52-year-old woman repeatedly over a year, officials said on Thursday.
According to the complaint filed by the woman, the accused used to work as her husband’s driver and also helped in household chores, they said.
On December 10, 2019, when she was home alone, the driver entered her room and molested her, the complainant alleged.
When she resisted, the accused allegedly threatened to kill her husband and raped her. After that day, the accused repeatedly raped her for over a year and threatened to kill her husband if she tried to stop him, police said, quoting the complainant.
“I was silent for a long time, but now I finally decided to go to the police,” the woman said in her complaint.
An FIR was registered in this regard against the driver under IPC sections 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation) at Mahila police station in Sector 51 on Wednesday, police officials said.
A senior police officer said they are verifying the facts, and action will be taken as per law.
