Gurgaon: A BPO employee, on Saturday, alleged sexual exploitation by a senior employee of a private company on the pretext of marriage for the last six months.

According to police, the 27-year-old woman met the accused Balmukund Mishra, a year ago through a marriage portal.

"Mishra, who also works in Gurgaon, befriended her after a series of interactions over phone and WhatsApp. They mutually decided to enter into a live-in relationship and rented a flat in the New Palam Vihar area," IANS quoted Subhash Bokan, PRO of the Gurugram police.

The woman, who was married then, had filed a divorce petition in a court. Mishra, also married, had told her that he had also filed a divorce plea in an Amritsar court, the woman claimed.

They stayed together between February and July this year, Bokan said and added, as per the victim's claims their relationship went sour and Mishra started ignoring her in August after she discussed plans of marriage.

Mishra quit the arrangement in the last week of August and left the house, the PRO said and added, when the woman contacted him over the phone, he abused her and threatened of dire consequences if he was approached again.

The woman filed the complaint at the Bajghera police station. SHO Deepak Kumar said the complaint had been registered under relevant section of the Indian Penal Code.
