A case of rape was registered against eight persons at the Sadar police station on Wednesday after a woman complained that she had been repeatedly raped by her friend and his accomplices.

The victim, a resident of Sector 31, told the police that she had become friends with a person she met at a book shop last June.

A month later, he invited her to a flat and she was offered a soft drink laced with drugs, the woman alleged.

After she fell unconscious, the man and two of his friends raped her.They allegedly made a video and took photographs of the act and used them to blackmail her, the woman told the police.

They threatened her that they would share the pictures on the internet if she did not cooperate. The victim also alleged that she was taken to different parts of the country by the accused who “hypnotised her for the purpose of sexual assault”.

The woman alleged that she was raped by seven more persons in December 2016 and February 2017, and was once taken to Allahabad for the purpose. It was on Wednesday that the woman gathered the courage to tell her husband.

“A case has been registered against the culprits and a detailed probe is underway. Several places have been raided to nab the accused,” ACP, Manish Sehgal, spokesperson of Gurgaon police, said.
