AHMEDABAD: A GPSC aspirant has accused an Usmanpura resident of raping her after promising her marriage. She also accused the 28-year-old and his friend of having cheated her family members out of Rs 7 lakh.
Filing an FIR on Monday, the 21-year-old Ghatlodia resident named Kuldeep Jain, a resident of Snehsangam Society, and his friend Akash Chaudhary as accused.
The woman, whose father is an SRP jawan, told police that she was studying for BCom at a Navrangpura college when she met Jain at a cafe. “He persuaded her to have a relationship with him. Jain told me that he earned Rs 80,000 per month. I thought he was well-educated and earned well, so I decided to spend my entire life with him. He also met my family and would often stay over at my house,” she said.
The girl told police: “Jain told my family that his father was dead and his mother had remarried. So, he was alone and wanted to have a family of his own.” She alleged that Jain took her to various hotels in Vastrapur and Gurukul where he raped her. She further alleged that he also raped in a parked car in Bopal.
Later, Jain asked her sister, father, and mother for money to invest in business. Though he did not allegedly divulge the details of the venture, he promised them huge returns. “My family gave him and Chaudhary Rs 7.19 lakh but they did not give back a paisa,” she told police. She alleged that when she demanded the money back, the two threatened her and her kin with dire consequences. Jain broke up with her and stopped responding to her calls.
