A petition was filed in the Kerala High Court today alleging that a young woman who bobbitised a godman was abducted from her house and was illegally confined at a place in Nedumangad in Thiruvananthapuram.
In a habeas corpus petition, a man claimed that he and the girl werein love for more than a year and he used to visit her house occasionally. He alleged the girl wastaken away forcibly from her house as a result of a criminal conspiracy hatched by some people close to the godman.
It was done at a time when investigation into the case was progressing, he submitted.
The plea comes two days after the police had approached a court here seeking permission to conduct scientific tests, including lie detector, on the young woman victim.
The 23-year-old woman had allegedly cut off the genitals of a man when he reportedly tried to rape her at her home in Pettah in Thiruvananthapuram last month.
The woman in her complaint had stated that the accused has been known to her family for the past few years and has been harassing her since she was a minor.
He frequented her home for performing poojas and used to assault her during the visits, the complaint had said.
