A woman filed a complaint of rape and cheating against a man and his family after they failed to turn up for the wedding scheduled for the couple, police said today.
Vijay Madan Pillay (30), an army jawan, was in love with the 29-year-old woman, who is now five months' pregnant, and had allegedly maintained sexual relationship with her for the last five years while promising to marry her, police said.
On Monday, the couple was scheduled to get married, but the groom and his family did not turn up for the wedding ceremony.
The woman's family, residing in Gattigudam area of the city, tried to locate them, failing which they lodged a complaint against Vijay and his family at Sardar police station here.
Police said offences under relevant sections including rape and cheating were registered against Vijay and his family members.
Incidentally, Pillays had lodged a complaint with police two days back that the woman was already married and that they were cheated by her. Further investigation was on, police added.
