A 55-year-old doctor was recently arrested for allegedly raping and blackmailing a 22-year-old model. The Versova police said the woman and the doctor met at the end of 2017 through a mutual friend, after which they became friends.

“The woman wanted to see a doctor regarding a skin treatment in 2017 when her friend referred her to the accused. She went there for treatment and eventually became friends with the doctor,” said a police officer.

The officer said that the doctor rented a house in Versova for the woman. “During investigations, we found that some money was transferred to the woman’s account by the doctor. The complainant said that the doctor on one occasion took some pictures of her, eventually using it to blackmail her,” the officer added.

According to the police, the accused raped the woman and used the pictures to blackmail her if she thought of approaching the police.

A complaint was registered last week, after which the police arrested the doctor on Sunday from Chembur.

Police said that they are investigating the case further and are gathering evidence to file a charge-sheet in the case. “We have interrogated the doctor and we will also be gathering technical evidence to file a watertight charge-sheet in the case,” he added.
