A 24-year-old woman has accused her landlord of raping her for almost one-and-half years and forcing her into prostitution.

The woman, who works with a private company and lives in Munirka village, said the landlord had made several video clips of her having sex with another man after locking her in his room and had threatened to upload them on the Internet. Her landlord, identified as Vinod Kumar, had also promised to marry her. He has been arrested after the woman registered an FIR against him at the Vasant Vihar police station.

Police said the victim, a native of Mathura in Uttar Pradesh, came in contact with Kumar two years ago when she came to Delhi to look for a job and was introduced to him by a friend. Kumar, a property dealer, offered her a room on rent and the two subsequently fell in love.

“The woman alleged that Kumar first drugged and raped her over a year ago. When she protested, he promised to marry her and continued to exploit her sexually. He even forced her to have sex with other men,” the officer said, quoting the woman’s complaint.

More cases reported

Another case of rape surfaced from the same police station involving an 18-year-old woman accusing her boyfriend of raping her for over four years on the pretext of marriage. Police have arrested her boyfriend, identified as Viplav Das. He is an engineering student.

The woman in her complaint alleged that she was living with Das for the past four years and was only 14 years old when he first had sex with her. She also alleged that in their four-year relationship, she got pregnant five times and he forced her to abort the child each time.

One more case of rape was registered at the Hauz Khas police station on the complaint of a 28-year-old widow against her friend, identified as one Samir Hussain. The woman alleged that Hussain, a driver, had been raping and assaulting her for the past some months. He has been arrested.
