Bhayandar : The Kashimira police are on the hunt of a middle-aged man who raped his 35-year-old neighbour at her own home after lacing her tea with sedatives. However, no arrests have been so far as the accused has gone absconding, police said. The woman has alleged in her complaint that the accused, after a brief courtship, promised to marry her. However, when she flatly refused to respond to his sexual overtures before marriage, the accused laced her drinks with sedatives and allegedly raped her. Claiming to be in possession of her pictures in a compromising position the accused started blackmailing her and forced to continue illicit relations with him and allegedly raped her on multiple occasions. Perturbed by the consistent threatening and blackmailing, the woman finally mustered courage and lodged a complaint against the accused, following which a case under section 376, 328, 504 and 506 of the IPC was registered on Sunday.
