The Delhi Police on Saturday arrested the accused, in connection with the alleged rape of a 33-year-old Delhi-based businesswoman, from Chandigarh.

According to reports, the accused is being brought to Delhi for further investigation.

The accused allegedly raped the businesswoman after they met over lunch to discuss business at a hotel in Connaught Place on Saturday.

The incident came to light when the woman called up the police in the evening and reported the matter, a senior police officer said.

The woman, who resides in south Delhi’s Defence Colony, owns a business enterprise here. She met the accused today over lunch to discuss business matters, the officer said.

The man, who had come from Chandigarh, was known to the woman and they had met earlier. He allegedly spiked her drink with sedatives and took her to a room in the hotel in the inner circle of Connaught Place, where he forced himself upon her.

The woman called up the police after she gained conscience but by that time the accused had left.

A case under Section 376 (rape) was registered by the police, the officer said adding that they are trying to track down the accused man.
