Mumbai, Jan 3 (PTI) A 25-year-old fashion designer has
accused a Chartered Accountant (CA) of raping her on the
pretext of marriage, following which the Mumbai Police have
registered a case against him, an official said on Sunday.

The FIR was filed at Vakola police station, after the
woman lodged a complaint on Thursday night against Furquan
Khan, a resident of Goawala compound in Kurla, he said.

“In the complaint, the woman said she came in contact
with Khan through a social media platform in January last
year. Soon, they began chatting online,” the official said.

The very next month, Khan demanded Rs 10,000 from her
for personal use. She borrowed the money from her friend and
gave it to him, he said.

“After a few days, she demanded her money back from
Khan, but he started giving excuses and stopped taking her
calls. In September last year, when she contacted Khan again,
he said he would return the money by personally meeting her.
Next month, he went to her house where she lived alone,” the
police official said.

“On reaching her place, Khan said he would marry her
and she believed him. However, taking advantage of her being
alone at home, he raped her,” he said, adding that after the
incident, he started harassing her.

Fed up with the constant harassment, she approached
the police.

A case under IPC section 376 (rape) has been
registered against Khan, but he is yet to be arrested, the
official said. PTI ZA
