New Delhi: The son of a BSP leader was on Wednesday booked and arrested for allegedly raping a 35-year-old woman on pretext of marriage.
The woman, who also claims of having a two-year-old child from the accused, said in her complaint that during 2010 she used to work in a factory owned by Shivbhushan (40).
Shivbhushan is the son of BSP candidate from Mangolpuri area.
The woman alleged that in 2010, Shivbhushan offered her cold drink laced with sedative. As she fell unconscious, he raped her.
After the assault, Shivbhushan promised that he would marry her and they started living together in a rented accommodation, she claimed. In the meantime, she gave birth to a baby.
However, later, things turned sour when Shivbhushan started living separately.
"We received a complaint on November 22 from the victim in which she has alleged that the accused developed physical relation with her on the pretext of marriage. She also claims to have a two-year-old baby from him," said a police official.
The victim was sent to Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital where rape was established in her medical examination.
The police then lodged an FIR of rape at Mangolpuri Police Station and arrested Shivbhushan. Further probe is on, police said.
