The complainant, a resident of the same locality, told the police that she got married to a Phillaur-based man in 2016. Later, due to some matrimonial dispute, she left her husband and started staying at her parent’s house.

Rajbir, who was staying in the neighbourhood, had developed a friendship with her. He had also proposed to her.

“The suspect had promised me that he would marry me and developed a physical relationship with me. Most of the time when he met me, he used to offer me some cold drinks laced with sedatives and rape me,” alleged the victim.
