26-yr-old ‘who tried to convert woman’ held | Ghaziabad News – Times of India

GHAZIABAD: A 26-year-old man was arrested near the Ghaziabad railway station on Sunday for the rape and attempted religious conversion of a woman he befriended online in 2020.

An investigation has found he was booked for rape in March at Delhi’s Adarsh Nagar police station.
Cops said the accused, Khalid Chaudhary, a resident of Vijay Nagar, worked as a journalist for two years before quitting in February.

ACP Nimish Patel said on June 21, the woman filed a complaint against Chaudhary, saying he befriended her on Facebook as Deepak. When they met after 6 months, she learned his name was Khalid Chaudhary and tried to cut off ties, but he allegedly threatened to leak her private pictures and videos. She also said that when she became pregnant with his child, he assaulted and raped her, causing a miscarriage. He allegedly also took her to a mosque to convert her.
Police said the accused had also not revealed his name to the woman he raped in Delhi. They booked him under IPC sections 376 (committing rape repeatedly), 313 (causing miscarriage without consent of woman), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), and 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and relevant sections of state laws on forceful religious conversion.
