Engineering student gang-raped by seniors; act filmed to blackmail her
Vijayawada, June 30: In yet another shocking incident, a 22-year-old engineering student in Krishna district was gang-raped by her seniors.
In her complaint to the police, she said that two of her seniors took her to a birthday party in February last year, where they spiked her drink and raped her. As they had filmed the act, they blackmailed her and continued to assault her, police said.
Police in Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh have charged the three accused after receiving the complaint.
Two of the accused, Siva Reddy and Krishna Vamsi, had reportedly spiked the girl's drink during a party at a hotel in February 2017 and then allegedly raped her. They also filmed the act and used the video to blackmail the girl, seeking sexual favours from her, police said.
According to police, the third accused began blackmailing the girl from the last two months, asking for sexual favours, and allegedly demanding Rs 10 lakh, threatening to make the videos public. The girl then discussed the ordeal with her parents and her father lodged a complaint with the police on Friday.
"The girl finished her course a couple of months ago. However, another classmate, D Praveen, started blackmailing her asking for sexual favours, saying that he possessed a copy of the video and would upload it on websites if she did not comply. The girl informed this to her father, who in turn lodged a complaint," police said.
The police have charged the men with gangrape, and also under the IT Act for filming the crime and using it to blackmail her.
