A case of alleged abduction, rape and conversion of a 28-year-old woman last month, has been closed by the police after the victim claimed that she had gone with the accused wilfully.

The Investigating Officer (IO) in the case Samerjit Singh Kaur filed a report under section 169 CRPC (release of accused when evidence deficient) on Monday, on the basis of the victim's statement recorded in court, saying that there is no evidence against the accused.

Earlier, the victim in her statement said that she had eloped and was not abducted by the accused. She had eloped with her boyfriend Mukeem Ahmad belonging to a different community at Thana Bhawan town in Shamli district on July 9.

The victim's father had lodged an FIR against her boyfriend Mukeem and three of his family members, alleging that his daughter was abducted from Thana Bhawan town.

Tension had gripped in Thana Bhawan area following the incident and several protests were held. Meanwhile, the couple had sought police protection from the High Court.

The court directed police to record her statement under section 164 CRPC (recording of confessions and statement). Upon the direction of High Court, the woman was produced in court and she recorded her statement, saying that she is a major and had eloped.
