“Kumar told her he might have some work for her but has to ask his wife first. He then took her to his residence where he raped her, committed unnatural sex and brutally beat her. He than dropped her near Karkardooma court,” Joint Commissioner of Police Ravindra Yadav said.
“The police were informed by the staff of Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital in Kalyanpuri about the woman’s allegation of rape. The doctor confirmed to the police it was a case of sexual assault,” Yadav added.
Since the victim has a short memory, the police faced problems during investigation. The teams searched many areas of Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR) to trace the accused, the officer added.
Later, the woman was taken to Hindon river, where she remembered the name of the residential building where she was taken as Gokuldham Society in Ghaziabad, the police said.
Kumar has been married twice and has four children. He works as a driver with Uber, the officer added.
