Pantheerankavu domestic violence case: Complainant taken into police custody

kk

KOCHI: Police have taken the complainant woman in the Pantheerankavu domestic violence case into custody. The woman landed at the Nedumbassery airport at around 8.30 pm on Thursday. She was taken into custody by the Vadakkekara police soon after this. The woman's father had lodged a complaint with the police stating that his daughter had gone missing. The woman was taken into custody on the basis of this complaint. She will be produced in court tomorrow.

The other day, the woman released a video saying that she was safe and that she was not threatened by anyone to retract her statement. She also said that she was staying away from home due to pressure from her family.

"My family members forced me to cry and act in front of the media. The allegation that Rahul tried to strangle me using a phone charger cable is a lie. The mark on my neck has been there since my birth. It is not a mark caused by physical assault. The wound on my hand occurred when I was dancing at the reception. My family, however, told the police that the wound was inflicted by Rahul. I was not able to take a mature stand then. I feel guilty about it. I was under pressure from my father to lie to the court while recording a confidential statement," the woman said.

Earlier, the woman's father told the media that accused Rahul might have influenced his daughter to retract her statement. The woman released the video after this.
