In April 2023, the accused called the victim for a talk at his home. He spiked the water that he offered to her with drugs. When the woman lost her consciousness, he allegedly raped her and captured the incident on his mobile phone. He later used the video to blackmail the victim, forcing her to hand over a significant amount of cash and gold ,” said an officer.

The accused shared the video with the victim, over several months, fearing disrepute in society and her family, the victim took loans from friends and relatives under various pretexts and also stole jewelry from family members to meet the suspect’s demands.
