The woman has filed a complaint against Rampal, Tannu and Praveen, who she alleged had raped her after taking her to visit a plot in Vrindavan last year. She alleged that she was offered a spiked drink and then
gang raped. The perpetrators also allegedly filmed the crime.

"They threatened me that they would circulate the video if I approached the police. Initially the police did not file my complaint. After I somehow managed to get the complaint filed, they started harassing my 17-year-old daughter and are pressuring me to take back my complaint," the complainant said. However, Faridabad police PRO Sube Singh rejected the woman's claims, saying that the woman herself was facing a
criminal case and her protest was just an attempt at "diversion".

"We had registered a case against her under section 120(b) in May last year. She had lured a minor girl to a room where her associate, one Mohan Tiwari, had raped the minor," he said.

"Later, both the woman and Tiwari were released on bail. She is creating a drama to divert the police investigation against her," he added.
