A woman was allegedly raped by her husband’s business rivals at her Topsia apartment on Tuesday afternoon.
Police have arrested one of the accused and launched a search for two others named in the complaint.
The victim has alleged that the trio entered the apartment around 12.30pm when she was alone at home.
“Vinod, Guddu and Lalbabu entered my apartment. I tried to resist them but they overpowered me. I could not raise the alarm because they gagged me,” she said in her complaint.
Vinod has been arrested. “We are expecting leads on Lalbabu and Guddu soon,” said Pallab Kanti Ghosh, the joint commissioner of police (crime).
Investigation revealed that the trio are one-time business associates of the woman’s husband, a realtor in the Tiljala-Topsia area. They later became rivals and would allegedly fight every night.
