Gurpreet told the victim that he would kill her
A case is underway after an Indian husband handed over his new wife to his friends to be raped.
According to the victim, the suspect had promised to marry her but never did so. Instead, he would force her into having sex with him.
When they eventually got married, he took her to meet his friends before forcing her to be raped by them.
The horrific incident led to her becoming pregnant but she was given medication, which caused a miscarriage.
Following the deliberate miscarriage, the suspect allegedly raped his wife, causing her to become pregnant again.
As a result of her ordeal, she approached the police and explained what had happened.
A case has been registered against the husband Gurpreet Singh, his friends Manni and Harsh, and his mother Sarvjit Kaur.
The victim told officers that the accused is her second husband, following her divorce from her first husband.
She explained that she originally got married in Uttar Pradesh but regular disputes eventually led to divorce.
One day, the woman attended her friend’s son’s birthday party where she met Gurpreet, originally from Haryana. They spoke at the party and exchanged phone numbers.
Singh called her and arranged to meet her. He convinced her into having sex with him by promising to marry her.
It was revealed that he would make false marriage promises in order for her to please him sexually.
Singh and the woman eventually got married at a gurudwara in Amritsar, Punjab.
They later travelled to Manali, Himachal Pradesh, where he had arranged to meet two of his friends.
The Indian husband told his new wife that she would have to get to know his friends. She was then raped by Harsh and Manni, who had been drunk at the time.
After the assault, Gurpreet told the victim that he would kill her if she spoke about the incident.
The woman became pregnant, however, Singh’s mother, Sarvjit Kaur gave her medicine which forced a miscarriage.
Singh allegedly raped his wife, causing her to become pregnant. He then told her that she would need an abortion.
