Two underage siblings raped and blackmailed for six months; 2 took place

They testified that the two men raped the siblings and recorded the acts on video.

The accused, who was friends with the girls, aged 13 and 15, extorted around Rs 10 lakh from the siblings’ family since January by threatening to spread the videos on social media, police said. “The accused befriended both girls after contacting them over the phone. They once lured the girls under the pretext of having fun together, but they drugged them and raped both girls. During the incident, the accused also shot obscene videos of both the girls,” a police spokesman said.

“Lakhs of rupees were extorted from the girls as the accused otherwise threatened to spread the videos on social media and threatened to kill the girls,” the spokesman said.

“The matter came to light when the father was looking for money that the family kept at home, but he couldn’t find it, so he asked the girls if they had seen the money. The girls then told their father that they had given the money to the accused and narrated the entire situation,” the official said.

Based on the father’s complaint, an FIR was immediately lodged under IPC sections 376 (rape), 506 (intimidation), 328 (giving poison to someone with intent to commit an offense) and 384 (extortion), police said.

Charges under the provisions of the stringent POCSO Act were also raised in the case filed on Sunday, following which the accused were detained at Aichhar T point in Greater Noida on Monday, the police added.

According to the police, the accused were brought before a local court, which placed them under temporary arrest. PTI KIS NB NB
