A rape victim has been threatened of facing consequences even worse than the Unnao victim if she pursued the case in the court. The incident has been reported from Baghpat in Uttar Pradesh where a threatening poster was pasted outside the victim’s house.
The unnamed poster read, “Agar Court Me Gawahi Di To Uskha Anjaam Bahut Hi Bura Hoga. Uska Anjaam Unnao Se Bhi Bhayankar Ho Sakta Hai”.
Baghpat Police arrested the accused again as the victim pleaded for her security with CM Yogi Adityanath. The accused had come out on bail on Wednesday. Earlier, Delhi Police had arrested him.
The victim hails from Kotwali Badaut village in Baghpat and she used to teach at a coaching centre in Delhi’s Mukherjee Nagar. She has accused a man from her village, Sohran Singh, of raping her in Delhi last year.
She said Sohran had visited her in Delhi a year ago. The victim alleged Sohran took her to a friend’s place where he drugged and raped her. The accused also made a video of the incident and used it to blackmail and rape the victim again.
A Delhi court will next hear the case on Friday. But before that the posters had surfaced outside the victim’s house in Baghpat.
The accused person, however, has said that some of his rivals in the village had put up the posters to implicate him.
