A city court on Monday dismissed the bail application of a differently-abled man who had cheated a physically handicapped woman into sexual intercourse with the allure of marriage after getting acquainted with her through a matrimony website.
The 31-year-old differently-abled woman filed a complaint against N Balasubramaniam (33), a colleague at her workplace and who was also physically handicapped.
In her complaint, she said her brother had registered her name in a matrimony website. The accused had shown interest in her profile. Her brother, who was contacted by the accused, forwarded his telephone number to her after which she developed familiarity with Balasubramaniam.
In June last year, when the two apparently met, Balasubramaniam spiked a glass of fruit juice, after which the woman fainted. By using this opportunity, she was allegedly forced into sexual intercourse without her consent.
Following this, she became pregnant. The pregnancy was aborted after the man promised to marry her if she did so. But he reneged on the promise.
He also threatened to post pictures of them being intimate on the Internet if she escalated the matter.
The man was arrested in March by the Inspector of Police at the all-women police station in Guindy following the complaint and cases were filed under sections 417, 376, 313, 506(2) and Section 4 of the TNWH Act.
When the bail application of the accused, N Balasubramaniam, came up for hearing on Monday, it was dismissed by Principal Sessions Judge P Kalayarasan.
