Dr.Kapur, a single parent of a 9 year old, said in a press release that she was approached by him on India’s Republic Day at the Indian Consulate in New York. " Colonel Manoj Tiwari started to chase me despite refusals to meet him. He made pretentious reasons to meet me including using excuses of social service for humanity, and medical project work etc. and praised me for the social work for humanity," she said.
Because he was an Indian Government official, Dr.Kapur said she trusted him never suspected anything against him. After Tiwari’s months of chasing, she said she finally agreed to meet him in a public place for a discussion in between her medical meetings and meetings at the United Nations. Tiwari’s story to Dr.Kapur was that he is single now but was married two times, his first wife ran away with another man, then as a rebound his mother got him married to another woman who was an uneducated and insensitive towards him, the press release said. He started to send her unlimited love texts, unlimited calls daily, e-mails, greeting cards and poetry using Permanent Mission's cell phone and stationery. The press release said after months of familiarity
Tiwari raped Dr.Kapur by tricking her to come to his office and adding an unknown sedative in the tea served to her. Dr.Kapur was devastated and was in severe pain, the press release added.
Tiwari first threatened Dr.Kapur that something bad could happen to her if she proceeded to report him, but quickly changed his tune and became very apologetic and got on his hands and knees offering to marry her. He also emotionally blackmailed her saying if reported the incident then out of shame he will kill himself. Dr.Kapur did not want to go through the embarrassment and kept quiet about the rape, the press release said. Dr.Kapur has saved evidence like hundreds of Tiwari’s text messages full of promises of being together and marrying her from his Permanent Mission cell phone, a letter that he wrote in his own blood for on
PMI stationery, emails from PMI official email and recorded conversations and voice-mails besides her soiled and blood-stained clothes with his semen on it. The press release said Dr.Kapur reported the incident to the Permanent Representative of India to the UN, Ambassador Ashoke Mukherjee, Deputy Permanent Representative of India Ambassador Manjeev Singh Puri and other officers.The Permanent Representative of India then passed on the complaints to his lower officers and nothing moved for over six months. No one investigated the matter at PMI instead passed the buck without any outcome. She feared that the officers are covering up for Tiwari. Dr.Kapur says she also reported the matter to The Indian Embassy, all past and current Ambassadors Permanent Representatives and Deputy Permanent Representative, Counselors, Military Attache, Air Attache and Naval Attache in Washington and New York and to her dismay none investigated her complaint. It has been over a year since Tiwari left for India, but no one has taken cognizance of Dr.Kapur’s complaints. Instead, she charged, after she began voicing her complaint,
