An 18-year-old Bhopal girl has accused a man, who had allegedly raped her in Indore six months ago, of threatening her on Tuesday night to attack her with acid and make public objectionable pictures of her.

The threat was allegedly made at the VIP parking in front of a mall in the MP Nagar area of Bhopal around 10pm.

The girl and her mother, who works at the mall, were leaving for home on a scooty when two men, identified as Rupesh Jaiswal and Arpit Saxena, confronted them.

They allegedly misbehaved with the teenager and her mother, SP (Bhopal South) Anshuman Singh said.

The matter was reported at MP Nagar police station on Wednesday evening. The girl alleged that Rupesh lured her to Indore six months ago and sexually exploited her.

She became pregnant and the man, with the help of Arpit and a woman friend, made her abort foetus at a private clinic in February, the girl alleged.

A case of abduction, rape and criminal intimidation has been lodged against the two men, who are on the run, the police officer said.
