While the Vile Parle police have arrested six of the accused so far, three are on the run
The Vile Parle police arrested six friends from a group of nine, on charges of sexually assaulting a minor, on Saturday. The 15-year-old survivor, who resides in Vile Parle, had been facing the torture for a year. She is in class X and her parents are daily wage earners. In her statement she told police that she had approached one of the accused regarding a personal matter about a year ago, seeking his help in resolving it.
Sex tape and blackmail
She later got into a relationship with the man, who to her horror, made a video clip of their intimate moments and circulated it among eight of his friends. Soon after, each of them started blackmailing her, and taking advantage of her sexually. She did not reveal this to her parents or anyone else, as she was afraid that the accused would harm her family members.
