Noida/New Delhi, Sep 23: The reported gang rape of a 25-year-old woman in a moving car in Noida area on Friday evening turned out to be a hoax, with the woman giving in writing to police that the incident never took place, police said on Saturday.
Noida Rural Superintendent of Police (SP) Suniti told IANS that the woman gave in writing to the police on Saturday afternoon that the “incident” did not take place.
“We’re looking into the reason why she made the rape allegation and will take action against her,” the officer said.
The 25-year-old had on Friday night claimed that she was abducted by two men in a Scorpio SUV near Noida’s Golf Course Metro Station at around 6.30 p.m and they took turns to rape her.
She had said that she was later dropped off near Akshardham temple in east Delhi.
The SP said that Noida police had registered an FIR in the early hours of Saturday and later took the woman for medical examination to a hospital.
“There (in the hospital) an acquaintance joined her and they left without her undergoing the medical examination, saying they did not want a case,” the SP said.
Later, police called her again for medical examination.
“This time she allowed only external examination and not an internal examination,” the officer said.
Suniti said the woman later accepted that the incident did not take place and gave the same in writing to the police.
