The Gorai police, over the last one month, has been on the lookout for a 30-year-old man who has allegedly raped a 26-year-old former media professional after promising her marriage. As per the police, the accused, Kapil Ingole, who is also associated with a media firm, was in a relationship with the complainant for over a year.
Balsingh Rajput, DCP of Zone 11, said, "The two were in a relationship and the accused had rented an apartment in Vikhroli. The survivor also lived in the same area. The couple became intimate and the man promised to marry her. However, he went back on his words and stopped entertaining her."
Following this, the survivor approached the Park Site police. She told the police that she became intimate with him in a hotel in Gorai a few months ago. The Park Site police then transferred the case to the Gorai police in the second week of May. After the FIR was registered under sections of rape, Ingole applied for anticipatory bail in a suburban court in Dindoshi, which was recently rejected. The accused has now approached the high court and his plea is yet to come up for hearing.
"His whereabouts are untraceable. We will be arresting him soon," added Rajput.
