Watchman booked for raping 15-year-old girl

A 25-year-old watchman was booked on Tuesday for allegedly raping a 15-year old school girl for around eight months in city’s Dindoli area.

The accused Vikas Shrivastava also shot a video when he committed the alleged crime for the first time and used it to rape the girl multiple times. He had threatened to share the video on social media.

The accused was booked by Dindoli police following a complaint of the minor girl.

According to police, Shrivastava forcibly took the minor to a vacant rowhouse behind her residence in November 2017 and allegedly raped her. He shot a video of the crime and showed it to the girl and threatened to make it viral on social media.

Fearing social stigma, the girl submitted to the repeated demands of the accused. Over the last eight months, the accused raped the minor in an industrial unit and at his apartment as well.

“The entire crime came to light a couple of days ago when the survivor’s father noticed Shrivastava taking the girl with him. The girl’s father also thrashed the accused causing his several injuries,” said a police officer at Dindoli police station.

The accused was admitted to the hospital for treatment due to serious injuries. Police have booked the girl’s father for thrashing the accused.

“Shrivastava is yet to be arrested as he was under treatment at a private hospital,” said police. Police said that Shrivastava was married and father of a child.
