“We have identified the main accused, his name is Ram Sewak Yadav,” ADG, women’s cell, Sutapa Sanyal said at a press conference in Lucknow today.
Ms Sanyal said that Yadav lured the 32-year-old victim, who stayed in apartment close to the under-construction building where he was employed as a security guard.
“The woman was looking for an apartment. On July 16, Yadav called the woman to Mohanlalganj where he assaulted her in the private parts and the woman died because of excessive bleeding,” Ms Sanyal said.
“The facts prove that this was not a gang-rape, this was a one-man operation,” she added. Ms Sanyal also said that the accused has a criminal history.
