A 23-year-old woman filed a complaint against a contractor on Tuesday,stating that he had been raping her for over three years and when she tried to complain about him,he threatened to kill her.

The incident was reported from South Delhi’s Vasant Kunj area. The contractor has been arrested,police said.

In her complaint,the woman said she works as a domestic help in a house in Vasant Kunj,where the man allegedly used to visit her. She said he also met her at a park outside the house,and had proposed to her,but she had refused. “He used to ask me to marry him but I always refused. At the pretext of talking and sorting things out,he often took me for a ride in his car. Once he took me to his uncle’s house and told me he wants to talk about our marriage. When I tried to resist,he threatened to kill me,” the woman said.

The woman alleged that the man also used to take her to his friend’s house and rape her. She said that after she conceived,the man forced her to undergo abortions several times,because of which her health deteriorated. “He used to get birth control pills for me and forced me to abort on several occasions. Later,he promised to marry me and I agreed… He often used to take money from me and told me that he was saving it for our marriage,” she said in her complaint.

The man,however,allegedly went missing,and when the woman tried to approach him,he refused to meet her. “He always made excuses and never met me after that. He took all my money and went to his village. Later,when he met me,he refused to get married to me and asked me not to contact him. He also threatened to kill me if I disclosed that he raped me on several occasions,” she said.

A case of rape has been registered against the contractor,and further investigations are on.
