Srinagar: In yet another shocking incident, a minor girl from the Gudder village of district Kulgam has been allegedly raped by a 20-year-old man who is also her relative.
Station House officer (SHO) Devsar, Jazib Mohammad told Free Press Kashmir over the phone that a 17-year-old girl along with her brother registered a case of rape on Saturday.
“In spring of 2020, a 17-year-old girl was raped by a 20-year-old man. The man had filmed her and the same obscene video has been uploaded on social media after a gap of 6 months,” the SHO said.
He said that the accused is a relative of the girl and he had been blackmailing her not to disclose the act with anyone or the video will be released on Social media.
The man has uploaded the video after six months and after uploading the video, the family of the girl enquired the reality of the video with the girl.
“She has revealed to her family that the boy had raped her a few months ago and was blackmailing her since then,” Jazib informed.
Police has arrested the accused after the complaint registered an FIR under section 376 (rape), 67A IP Act.
“The accused is in our custody. We have recorded girl’s statement and her brother’s. We are investigating the matter. Few more things need to be investigated after which we will file a charge sheet against the accused,” the SHO added.
This is the second incident in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district after the 21-year-old woman who was kidnapped and allegedly raped on October 31 by two men.
She was battling for her life for a month, but later succumbed to her injuries.
