Ghaziabad: A 25-year-old woman, who has accused her former live-in partner and his three friends of gang-raping her, on Thursday recorded her statement before a magistrate here, police said.

"The victim today recorded her statement under Section 164 before the court here," said a senior police official investigating the case.

Besides, the police interrogated the victim and a friend of her`s for two hours at the Indirapuram police station, he said.

Main accused Akhil Tomar and his friend were also interrogated for over one hour.

"Police are now recording statements of witnesses and accused in the case and it will be cracked soon," Deputy Superintendent of Police Atul Yadav said.
However, no arrest has been made so far.

In her complaint, the woman has alleged that on July 7, she was kidnapped and raped by her former live-in partner Akhil Tomar and his three friends in a moving car. She has also accused them of inserting a bottle in her private parts before dumping her in Noida Sector 62.

However, according to the police, there are some contradictions in the girl`s statements.

"As per her medical examination, no internal injury has been found in her private parts, which contradicts her statements on the bottle assault," another police official investigating the case had said yesterday.

"When Akhil`s mobile phone was examined, it was found that he was in east Delhi at the time of the alleged incident, instead of Ghaziabad and Noida as claimed by the girl," he had said.
The woman lived-in with Akhil Tomar for over one year and had also lodged a complaint against him for assault in January this year.

Police said the woman had earlier also registered a gang-rape case against a teacher at Sahibabad police station, which turned out to be untrue.

In the complaint registered on May 7, she had made serious allegations like brutal assault and pouring of petrol in her private parts against him, they said.

The woman has now made the same teacher her `writer` (one who writes complaint on behalf of somebody) in the gang-rape case of July 7, which is very confusing, they said.
