Muzaffarnagar: A woman who had registered a case against her father-in-law for allegedly raping her, turned hostile when she was produced in court for recording her statement.
The 26-year-old woman was produced in the court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Sunder Lal and recorded her statement last evening where she said she was not raped by her father-in-law and that she had filed the complaint under pressure, police said.
A complaint was filed by the woman against her 48-year-old father-in-law Sajid for allegedly raping her, following which she became pregnant.
The case was registered against Sajid and mother-in-law Naeema under section 376 (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation), and 120b (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code, SP city Sarvankumar had said.
The incident came to light when the woman, who is seven months pregnant, sought permission from District Magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma for abortion at Chapar village here. Sajid had earlier said that he was falsely implicated in the case over a property dispute.
