This is the face of the ‘Facebook friend’, she says
Two young people meet on facebook and become friends, and then so much more. Seems like a normal millennial love story, eh?
It was all a lie! The ‘boyfriend’ used the girl’s picture and photoshoped the images to make them indecent. He then blackmailed her for lakhs of rupees and made sure her engagement broke. He was not satisfied with just that but raped her to after inviting her for the sake of compromise. Now, finally, the girl has approached police who have registered her complaint and started the investigation. The incident is of Madhya Pradesh’s Gwalior.
About 5 years ago, a girl working in a private company got acquainted with youth named Rishabh Kapoor through Facebook. Rishabh ran an artificial jewellery business. For two years, Rishabh and the girl chatted on Facebook but then, it all changed.
He saved her Facebook images and then used photoshop to edit them. Rishabh then called her to a park and showed her the fake pictures. He blackmailed her into giving money.
The girl thought her nightmare was over but it was not to be. He continued blackmailing her and was able to get Rs 10 lakh and gold jewellery from her. He even managed to break her engagement.
When the girl threatened to go to police, he called her at his house for a compromise on 13 November. She agreed and reached his house where she met Rishabh’s mother; she offered her water. The girl fell unconscious but when she woke up, she had no stitch of clothing on her body. She realised that she was raped. When she confronted him, Rishabh boasted that he knew a lot of politicians.
Finally, on Monday, she plucked up the courage and reported the matter to the police. The girl has submitted all the fake photos she was blackmailed with, said Padhav Police station’s TI Santosh Singh.
