Even over two days after a rape case was registered against Santokh Singh Gill, father of model and former Big Boss contestant Shehnaaz Gill, the police are yet to arrest him.
A Jalandhar-based woman has accused Santokh of raping her at gunpoint. According to the complainant, the incident occurred on May 14 and the case was registered on Tuesday.
According to the FIR, the victim said she, along with her friend, had gone to Beas to meet her boyfriend Lucky Sandhu, who had been residing with Santokh.
The complainant said she was a divorcee and had been in a relationship with Lucky for 12 years. She said there were some differences between Lucky and her over some issue. She added that Lucky was not talking to her and on May 14, she, along with her friend, went to Beas to meet him.
The complainant said she met Santokh and told him that she wanted to meet Lucky. She alleged that he promised to take her to Lucky. She added that on the pretext of taking her to Lucky, he asked her to sit in his car alone.
She said he parked his car at a secluded place and raped her at gunpoint. He threatened her of dire consequences if she told anyone about it.
She said later, Santokh asked her to meet him. Disturbed over it, she narrated the incident to her friend. Thereafter, they decided to approach the police.
Kirandeep Singh, SHO, Beas police station, said they had initiated an investigation into the incident after registering a case under Sections 376 and 506 of the IPC. The SHO said raids were on to nab him.
