In the latest development in the Noida gang-rape case the victim has taken a U-turn from her statement and said that she was not raped at all. The 25-year-old woman gave the police in writing that the incident never took place, police said on Saturday.

According to initial reports, a 25-year-old woman was allegedly gang-raped by four men in a moving vehicle in Noida Sector 39 on Friday. The woman was allegedly raped in an SUV (Mahindra Scorpio) and was thrown out of the car around Akshardham in New Delhi. The woman was abducted from Noida’s Golf Course Metro station gate.

Noida Rural Superintendent of Police (SP) Suniti said that the woman gave in writing to the police on Saturday afternoon that the “incident” did not take place.

“We’re looking into the reason why she made the rape allegation and will take action against her,” the officer said.

The SP said that Noida police had registered aIR in the early hours of Saturday and later took the woman for medical examination to a hospital.

“There (in the hospital) an acquaintance joined her and they left without her undergoing the medical examination, saying they did not want a case,” the SP said.

Later, police called her again for medical examination. “This time she allowed only external examination and not an internal examination,” the officer said.

Suniti said the woman later accepted that the incident did not take place and gave the same in writing to the police.
