When the lift reached the 25th floor, I got out and the man followed me out. When I reached my flat and felt him behind me, I asked him why he was following me. He said he wanted to be sure that I got into my flat safely. I told him I did not need his help and asked him to stop accompanying me,” .
When I opened the door of my flat, he forced himself in. “I tried to run out of the flat but he pulled me back onto the bed. He held my two hands and sat on me.
I resisted him while he was undressing me but I could not as he was stronger than me. Gradually, I lost all my energy and so he could rape me,” the victim told investigators.
