Mlilo was on her way to attend a funeral in Zimbabwe with her mother and sister when she was arrested at the Musina border post in the early hours of the morning, on the basis that a warrant for her arrest on a fraud charge had been issued against her in Ermelo months before.
Scared, she ran towards her residence, when Chauhan made lewd comments, flashed and masturbated in front of her, police said. Two teams have been formed to track down the suspect's hideouts and nab him. Her father works in a private company while the mother is a housewife.
The matter came to fore after the family members of the woman, who was seven-month pregnant, lodged a complaint with the Pattamundai police.
She was kidnapped March 30 when she went out with Kuldeep and was with him till 11.30 pm. "The man later took her to his home and confined her in a room on the first floor".
He then repeatedly raped her.
The victim, Pilar (not her true name), 17, of Barangay Tetuan, averred to the police that she was abducted by an unidentified woman with undetermined number of accomplices at around 5:00in the afternoon of Saturday. "We are looking into this angle as well", added Tiwari.
They were known to each other but not related. "Nobody knew that Kuldeep had illegally kept the woman in his home", the officer said. The girl later fled the spot and reached home, where she disclosed her ordeal to her parents, who then approached the police. Her father accompanied to the police station where she filed a case against the accused, the officer said.
