Initially, Qureshi behaved in a hospitable manner and arranged papers related to her case apart from managing her stay at a hotel run by his friend, police said.
He also accompanied her to Bhuj, about 300-km from Ahmedabad, while on duty. In Bhuj, he arranged her a lawyer. On way back to the city from Bhuj, Qureshi opened up to her and expressed a desire to marry her after divorcing his wife, police said. Mina Jagtap, the woman's lawyer, told PTI "He said he didn't share a cordial relationship with his wife and wanted to divorce her." The complaint further said between November 1 and December 31, Qureshi took her to hotels on various pretexts and allegedly raped her. He also took Rs 50,000 from her. Qureshi told her that if she didn't marry him, he would kill himself, according to the complaint.
The woman said the police officer had been lying about his marital relationship and he later started blackmailing and threatening her, leading her to file the complaint.
