Jaipur: A 17-year-old girl in Jhunjhunu was allegedly raped by her friend who later uploaded the video of the incident on social media. Although the incident took place on June 25, the teen’s family registered a complaint on Saturday after they came to know about the video.
Khetri police station, which is investigating the case, took the statement of the rape survivor on Sunday.
Khetro SHO Shishram Meena told TOI, “The girl and the 23-year-old youth knew each other for the last three years. Last month, he took her to Bhiwadi where he raped her and also recorded the incident.” Police said the girl’s parents came to know about the incident after one of their family members saw the recording on social media.
Meena said, “According to the girl’s statement, the youth wanted to marry her, but her family was against it. When they refused his marriage proposal, the accused uploaded the video on social media. Initially, the family was hesitating in registering a complaint but decided to go ahead after the video went viral.”
Police have detained the accused and are currently questioning him. “We came to know that the accused was in the area and we traced his whereabouts. He is currently being interrogated,” said the SHO.
The girl’s medical examination was done on Sunday and cases under POCSO and IT Acts were been registered against the accused.
