However, after being harassed and threatened, the victim decided to lodge a complaint and the Moradabad police registered an FIR on Monday against her brother and his friend.
In her complaint, the woman said she had informed her husband and the couple wanted to approach the police immediately, but was prevented by her parents for the sake of 'family's reputation'.
The woman said that she decided to lodge the complaint after the accused continued to roam outside her house and tried to harass and intimidate her.
Darvesh Kumar, SHO Civil Lines, said, "The FIR has been registered against the main accused and his friend under IPC sections 376 (punishment for rape), 452 (house trespass after preparation for hurt, assault or wrongful restraint) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation)."
