On the pretext of dinner, a 47-year-old freelance photographer invited his colleague home and sodomised him while the latter was asleep on December 4 in Cuffe Parade area. The 37-year-old survivor registered a complaint an hour after the incident and got the accused arrested.
“The accused, identified as Raju Mishra, is a resident of Cuffe Parade and a native of Uttar Pradesh and the victim too lives in the same area. Based on the complaint, the accused was booked under IPC section 377. Mishra is currently in police custody,” said a police officer. Being from the same profession, both of them were good friends.
The cops said Mishra and the survivor, who hails from Madhya Pradesh, have worked together in the past and are married. Their families stay in their hometowns.
