A man was arrested from the Govindpuri area in New Delhi for allegedly raping a 19-year-old woman for three years and forcing her into prostitution after promising her a job as a domestic help, the police said.
The accused kept her at his home, allegedly made obscene videos of her and threatened to upload them on social media.
The woman told the police that she had met the accused three years ago on a train while travelling from West Bengal to Delhi.
The accused had posed as a recruitment agent and told her that he will get her a job with a good pay.
He took the woman to his house, where he raped her and forced her into prostitution. Whenever she resisted, the accused would threaten her and force himself on her, the woman alleged.
On Saturday, when she was alone she escaped and met a man, who told her that he is from an NGO. She narrated her ordeal to him, who in turn informed the police.
The accused was arrested on Saturday evening. The woman’s statement was recorded and a case registered at Govindpuri Police Sation, a police official said.
