The incident, which took place in November 2014, came to light after the mentally challenged victim’s brother saw a video clip on a social networking site and identified his brother; following this, he lodged a police complaint
Two men have been arrested for allegedly forcing a mentally challenged teenager to perform oral sex on them eight months ago. The accused have been identified as Mohammad Navshad Khan (23), a resident of Jijamata Nagar, Worli and Shahid Bashir Khan (25) from Kurla.
According to the Worli police, both men are pursuing a Chartered Accountancy (CA) course and would gather at Mohammad’s residence for studying. They have even cleared the entrance test. The police said the incident came to light after the victim’s brother saw a video clip four days ago, and identified Shahid and his brother.
He then lodged a complaint at the V B Nagar police station in Kurla. The case was later transferred to Worli police station, as the incident had occurred in Jijamata Nagar.
“On November 15, 2014, Shahid took one of his friends a 19-year-old mentally challenged boy to Mohammad’s residence.
While Mohammed and Shahid made the teenager perform oral sex on them, they invited one of their online friends from Hyderabad to view the act live using a webcam and video chat software installed on their computer,” said a police official from Worli police station.
During interrogation, the duo revealed that this friend of theirs said he had recorded the webcast and often threatened to upload it on YouTube and various social networking sites. They said he never asked for any money. Cops are now investigating the man’s role in the crime.
“Both the men will be produced in the court on Thursday. They have been booked under Section 377 (unnatural sex) of the IPC and relevant sections of the Information Technology Act, 2000,” said an official from Worli police station.
