A divorced woman was allegedly raped by a man here after having been allured to be taken abroad after marriage with him, the police said today.
The police lodged an FIR against Hardyal Singh (47), a resident of Mullanpur in Ludhiana district for allegedly raping the 43-year-old woman.
The victim alleged in her complaint to the police yesterday that she was married in 1990 with one Harjit Singh, but they got divorced around six years ago.
She alleged the accused came in her contact some time back and tricked her into believing that he would marry her and take her to Canada with himself.
And he began raping her on this pretext, she added.
The woman told the police that the man came to her house on Wednesday when she was alone and forcibly raped her.
