Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh:

A 16-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a man who posted the video of the act online, police here said today.

Circle Officer (CO) Rajkumar Sav said the accused, Waseem, allegedly raped the 16-year-old two weeks ago in a sugarcane field and made a video of the act.

According to the complaint filed by the girl’s family, Waseem threatened the girl of sharing the video on social media if she informed anyone about the incident.

“The accused had forced the girl into a sugarcane field and raped her. He also threatened the girl of dire consequences and of making the video public, if she informed anyone about the incident,” the police said.

“Afraid of the threats, the girl didn’t complain to anyone about the incident,” Mr Sav said.

However, when the accused posted the video online on Tuesday, the girl’s parents approached the police, he said.

Police have filed an FIR under Indian Penal Code Section 376 and relevant sections of the Information Technology Act. Several police teams have been formed to look for Waseem who has been on the run since Tuesday evening.
