Gym instructor held for impregnating student

Goutham D R, instructor and owner of a gym, was bundled into a police vehicle as the bride and well-wishers looked on. 

The wedding was set and invitations were out. As the day came, just as the couple were readying to tie the knot, police arrived and arrested the groom.

Goutham D R, instructor and owner of a gym, was bundled into a police vehicle as the bride and well-wishers looked on. 

Goutham (31), a resident of Court Road in Doddaballapur town, was arrested and booked for rape, cheating, intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace. His father was booked under IPC Section 114 - abettor present when offence is committed, and other sections.

24-year-old victim Seetha (name changed) is an accountant in Doddaballapur. The youngest daughter of the family stated in her complaint that she joined Goutham’s Bullet Gym on Court Road in 2018. Goutham got her number from the registry and eventually developed a contact.

In April, in one of their conversations, she told him she married a year ago but left her husband after a misunderstanding.

False promises

Taking advantage, Goutham got closer to Seetha. Later, during one occasion, he raped her inside the gym promising marriage.

He repeated the same in various places. He took her to his apartment in Marasandra and promised both will live there after marriage.

After Goutham learnt Seetha was pregnant, he demanded that she abort the pregnancy. He convinced her they could have children after marriage.

Meanwhile, he started going out with Geetha (name changed), from a well-to-do family. Seetha learnt about it and approached Goutham’s father, Rajanna, who abused her. After a week, Goutham convinced Seetha that he was not after Geetha.

Goutham then took Seetha to his relative’s house and raped her again. When she became pregnant, he started avoiding her.

Meanwhile, arrangements were made to marry Geetha at Ghati Subramanya temple on Wednesday and Thursday, May 8 and 9. Seetha learnt about it and filed a complaint on May 7.

Doddaballapur police rushed to the spot and arrested Goutham as well as his father Rajanna. Both were produced before the court and remanded in judicial custody.
