The Oshiwara police arrested a 27-year-old man who allegedly sedated a woman, raped her and shot a video of it at his residence.

The man used the video to confine the 25-year-old woman in his house for 10 days where he raped her multiple times, shot and re-shot several videos of the rape and physically and mentally tortured her to change her religion.

The victim met the accused in March on a dating site. After the two became friends, the accused invited the woman to his apartment in a plush society on June 15 to celebrate a festival.

The accused sedated the woman by offering her a sweet dish. He then raped her and shot nude photos and videos of her. The next day, he threatened her to accept his demands failing which he would upload the photos and videos on social media.

The accused claimed that he was in love with the woman and wanted to marry her. The accused also forced her to watch videos of controversial evangelists and beat her if she did not follow the verses.

The accused said he had two passports, including a Pakistani passport, and showed her photo of a man seated on a chair surrounded by weapons such as bombs, police said.

The accused even made the woman write suicide notes and also took her signatures on blank papers.

The woman, who escaped from his house last week, registered a complaint on Saturday. A police officer from Oshiwara station, said, “We had lodged the FIR and arrested the accused on Monday.”
