An FIR was registered after a 28-year-old woman alleged that she was raped by a man in a five-star hotel in Delhi’s Dwarka area, the police said, adding that no arrest has been made yet in the case.
DCP (Dwarka) M Harsha Vardhan said, “A case of rape was registered after they received a complaint from a woman who used to work in a shop earlier. She alleged that she met the accused on the Tinder app and she then went to a hotel in Dwarka where she was sexually assaulted by him. The accused did not answer her calls after that and she lodged an FIR against him. The accused is a resident of Hyderabad and efforts are on to nab him.”
The woman told the police in her complaint that she met the accused, identified as Mohak Gupta, on a dating app on May 27. After some messages, they exchanged their numbers and decided to meet, the police said. On May 30, they went to a leading hotel where he offered her a drink laced with sedatives, the woman alleged in her complaint.
