The woman in her complaint said that on Thursday evening she returned home after completing her day of work at the factory. A few minutes later, her employer contacted her and asked her to come to her friend’s gym for some cleaning work.
“She alleged that her employer and two associates were already there. They locked the door from the inside and forced themselves on her. They also assaulted her when she resisted their attempts. The trio threatened her with serious consequences before fleeing, ”a police officer said, citing the woman’s allegations.
Police said the woman was sent to hospital for a medical examination and was released after preliminary treatment. A case was registered and the suspects were arrested.
