An 18-year-old man was arrested for allegedly uploading an obscene video and nude pictures of his 17-year-old girlfriend on social media after she refused to give into to his demands. Cops said the accused and the victim were in a relationship for the last few years.

On December 27,the accused took her to a lodge in Central Mumbai on the pretext of having a party. Here, he spiked her drink and raped her. He also recorded a video and clicked her nude photos.

A police officer said, “The accused once again forced her to come with him to the lodge. Realising that he was trying to exploit her, the girl tried to snap all ties with him. When she refused to go with him, he showed her the video and the photos, and threatened to post them on social media.”

Cops said the accused then raped her twice in the same lodge on January 2 and 13. However, he circulated a minute-long video and the photos on WhatsApp after the girl refused to give into his demands. He also uploaded them on Facebook after creating a fake profile in her name.

The girl immediately informed her parents after learning about the fake profile on February 13. She also discovered that the accused had allegedly shown the content to his friends before uploading it on social media.

The parents then approached the police and filed a complaint on February 14, based on which the accused was booked under sections 376 (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation), 328 (causing hurt by means of poison with intent to commit an offence) of the India penal Code and under relevant sections of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act .

The accused was traced and arrested the same day. An officer said, “He was arrested and produced in the sessions court, which remanded him in police custody till 20 February. The girl comes from a poor family and her father is a labourer. She has four siblings.”
