According to the complaint filed by the mother, her daughter, a student of Class 11, had befriended a man named Raj Diwedi, from Uttar Pradesh, last year on a social media platform. The conversation between the two continued for several days and they both exchanged several videos and pictures of a sensitive nature, police said.

Police were yet to arrest the accused man.

“The suspect later came to Gurugram and called the victim to a hotel and repeatedly sexually exploited her. He again called her to the hotel two more times last week. The suspect was pressurising the victim to meet him by threatening to make her pictures and chats viral. On Tuesday, he posted a nude picture of the girl on social media and also sent it to her mother. When the mother confronted the girl, she narrated her ordeal and they approached the police, “ said Preet Pal Sangwan, assistant commissioner of police (crime).
