Minor girl raped & blackmailed for months in UP's Kasganj

Kasganj : A class 11 student in Uttar Pradesh's Kasganj district was allegedly raped by a man who then blackmailed her into paying Rs 8 lakh or else he would upload the footage of the crime.

The accused was paid the money, but the girl was harassed by him and he demanded more money. The victim eventually told her mother about her ordeal, who reported it to the police. The girl's father is a local businessman, and the accused works in a nearby shop.

"An FIR has been filed against the main accused, his parents, brother, and a friend under various IPC sections and the POCSO Act," said Deputy Superintendent of Police Deep Kumar Pant on Monday. "They've all gone missing," he added. "The accused allegedly took the victim to a friend's house in December 2021, offered her a glass of cold drink laced with sedatives, and raped her," according to the complaint.

"With the help of a friend, he filmed the crime and then began blackmailing her. The accused spent Rs 2 lakh of the Rs 8 lakh that my daughter stole from my house and shop on a bike," according to the girl's father. The girl's family only recently learned of her trauma after she told her mother about it. "We noticed she wasn't eating properly lately and was behaving weird," her father explained.
