Sexually aggressed and harassed, 16 year old girl now claiming for justice
Mumbai: A 17-year old boy has been arrested after a 16-year old girl’s father registered a complaint against three teenagers for sexually abusing her daughter, filming the act and exploiting her for months with the threat of circulating the video.
The boy had been arrested and put in custody on Saturday. He had been allegedly accused of rape, blackmail under the stringent Posco Act and was produced before the Juvenile Justice board since both of them are minor.
The case came to light recently when the girl’s father learnt about an MMS clip circulating in his locality. Then the girl narrated her ordeal. She said that a few months ago, she befriended the culprit while she was going to school and one day the boy took her to the terrace of his building and abused her. He filmed the act and threatened her to remain silent. A few days later, he again approached the girl and warned if she does not meet him on the terrace, he would circulate the video.
The accused had been then exploiting her and the crime got more sinister as recently, a few other boys from the locality approached her one after the other with the video sexually abusing her.
The police are trying to find out how the MMS reached the other boys and further investigations are being carried.
