Ghaziabad woman booked for filing false gang-rape case

Ghaziabad, Feb 18 (IANS) Police Monday registered a criminal case against a woman who filed a false gang rape complaint against four men in Ghaziabad.

Police said the woman misled the police by filing a false case against factory owner Raju and his three employees Feb 7, alleging they had gang-raped her.

During investigation, it came to light that a man named Sanjiv, a resident of Sahibabad, instigated the woman to file a case against Raju and his three employees.

Sanjiv was earlier arrested by Sahibabad police for fraud, and was in jail for a week. After being released on bail, he suspected that Raju of being behind his arrest and hatched a conspiracy with the woman to settle the score with Raju.

" A case for misleading the police under section 182 of Cr.PC (Criminal Procedure Code) has been registered against the woman and Sanjiv," said Superintendent of Police (City) Shiv Shankar Yadav.
