A 37-year-old woman has accused her neighbour of allegedly raping her when she was alone at her west Delhi’s Janakpuri residence.
The woman also alleged that a couple of months back the man made an obscene MMS of hers and had been constantly blackmailing her. She also added that the accused, Chandrashekhar, was assaulting her sexually for the past six months by threatening her of making the MMS public.
“We have arrested the accused who is the alleged neighbour of the victim. He is working as a clerk at an Industrial Training Institute
(ITI),” V Renganathan, Additional commissioner of police (west) said.
The woman who has been married since 12 years and has a 10-year-old child, in her complaint alleged that she wanted to lodge an FIR several months back, but kept mum because of the MMS, as her reputation was at stake.
A case has been registered at the Hari Nagar police station. “Six days back when her husband learnt about the incident she was asked to leave the house immediately. And when she decided to lodge a complaint, the alleged accused Chandrashekhar, threatened her saying he had a video recording while being raped and would circulate it in the market if she filed a case against him,” said a senior police official.
