An 18-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a man she was engaged to on the false pretext of marriage for the past seven months in Ujjain district, police said on Friday.
The accused, Sajjad Hussain, was engaged to the girl nine months ago and allegedly raped her when he visited the victim's house in Gausa Nagar, Ujjain, in January, 2014. The accused also clicked objectionable photos of the girl and later used them to repeatedly blackmail and rape her, the police said.
The victim reported the matter to the police on Friday after the accused, a resident of Indore, threatened to share the photos on Facebook and WhatsApp. The police arrested Hussain and booked him under sections 376 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code.
