A 17-year-old boy entered a physical relationship with a 26-year-old woman who met him on Facebook.
Later, they charge each other of forced sex and filed complaints.
In what may seem a bizarre crime drama on television, the case in Delhi came to light when the juvenile was booked for rape charge and the woman under POCSO Act.
The 17-year-old boy claimed he was approached by the woman through a Facebook profile titled “Zinda” and they became friends, police said.
They met on Monday and went to a hotel in Vasant Kunj area where they allegedly indulged in sex. The woman later called the police and accused the boy of raping her, a senior police officer said.
However, the boy claimed that the woman had offered him to enter into a physical relationship and he initially spurned the offer. But she later lured him into it, the officer said.
Cross FIRs have been registered under relevant sections of IPC and POCSO Act, he said, adding police suspect it to be a case of “honeytrapping” and no arrests have been made so far.
