A man allegedly raped 22-year-old Dalit woman for two years on the false promise of marriage in Banda, police said on Friday.

The woman, who hailed from Mahoba district, lodged a complaint on Thursday evening at City Kotwali police station following which an FIR was registered against the accused.

She alleged that Utkarsh Sachan (25), who lived in her neighbourhood, had been raping her since the past two years on the promise of marriage, Station House Officer Jaishyam Shukla said.

He also threatened to kill her when she finally asked him to marry her, Shukla said.

The accused, who hailed from Hamirpur, had shifted to Kanpur about a month ago after he got a job there.
