Police arrested a 26-year-old Ambernath labourer for sodomising a minor girl in a Badlapur forest, then posting a video of the assault to Facebook.

The accused does odd jobs, said police. He knew the 17-year-old girl and asked her to come accompany him on a trip in April.

“Mailk rides a two-wheeler. He took the girl to a forest in Badlapur, then raped and sodomised her. He shot a video of the incident and uploaded it to Facebook. We are examining his social media accounts and will ask cyber crime cell officials to help us prevent the video from being circulated,” said a police officer from Hill line police station.

“Malik confessed to the crime. He and the girl underwent medical tests. We are awaiting the reports,” he added.

Malik was arrested under section 376 (punishment for rape) and 377 (unnatural offences) of the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012. He was remanded in police custody.
