“Last night, some policemen came. They were trying to force me to sign something. I refused. I did not have a lawyer. Neither did anyone from my family. They were forcing me, saying that whatever happens tomorrow, sign now. When I did not sign, they got angry and went away,” Priya said on Sunday.
“I have great faith in the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister. I just want justice,” she said.
The incident took place early on Monday morning near a hotel in Thane and police have registered a case against the accused, Ashwajit Gaikwad.
She further said that she had been in a relationship with her boyfriend for over four and a half years.
“I had a four-and-a-half-year relationship with my boyfriend. We were completely in love with each other. I did not know earlier that he was married. Later, when I came to know, he told me that they (his wife and him) were not together anymore; they had separated. He said that he wanted to marry me. I had been staying with him for a long time. When I went to meet him that night, he was with his wife. I was in shock when I went to talk to him; he got aggressive. We had a fight,” she claimed.
“Three bones in my right leg are broken; it has been operated on. From my left shoulder to my hips, I’ve had deep injuries…I cannot move my body. Four days ago, I went to file an FIR–the day all this happened. But no action was taken. Today, when I posted on social media, the police supported me,” the victim said
