A call centre employee lodged a complaint with the Gurgaon Police in the early hours of Thursday alleging that she was gang-raped by two persons in a moving car, but later retracted her statement before court. The police have registered a case and are verifying the veracity of her statement.

The 25-year-old woman, a resident of Delhi, told the police that she mistook a vehicle parked outside her call centre building for the office cab after duty hours around 7 p.m. and boarded it. According to her statement to the police, there were two persons in the car, including the driver.

The two took turns to rape her in a moving car and dumped her near a local bus stand three hours later. The woman then called her colleagues and the matter was reported to the police around 1 a.m. on Thursday.

When the police took the woman to a hospital she refused to undergo the medical examination, according to police sources. She later told the magistrate in writing that she had made statement to the police due to mental tension and nothing as such had happened to her.

“The woman told us that one of the persons appeared to be a call centre employee. We are trying to verify her statement made to the police and a case has been registered in this connection,” said Gurgaon Police Commissioner Alok Mittal.
