A farud occultist was accused of raping a woman, in whose house he had gone to perform a religious ritual, in Gurugram on Monday. The accused, identified as Amit, was invited by the victim and her husband after he recommended them to perform a ritual in the house to bring peace and prosperity to their lives. The couple had come in contact of Amit of Faridabad’s Ballabhgarh and had shared with him their financial distress and sufferings. He boasted of possessing divine powers that could drive away their woes, Gurugram ACP (Crime) Shamsher Singh said.
"As the couple was suffering from financial distress, they shared their problems with Amit, who recommended them to perform a ritual in the house to bring peace and prosperity to their lives," said the ACP as per PTI.
"Following the Amit's suggestion, the couple invited him to their house Monday evening to perform the ritual. After reaching the victim's place, Amit sent the husband to market to bring in some materials for the ritual," the police official said.
As the 27-year-old victim's husband left home to bring the requisite materials, Amit raped the woman and fled the scene after threatening her with dire consequences, if she disclosed the incident to her husband or report the matter to the police.
The victim, however, narrated her ordeal to her husband, who reported the matter to the police, said the ACP, adding a manhunt has been launched to nab the culprit.
