According to police, a 22-year-old engineering student from Andhra Pradesh has accused her seniors of raping her, filming the act and using it to blackmail her. In her complaint to the police, she said that 2 of her seniors took her to a birthday party in February last year, where they spiked her drink & raped her. As they had filmed the act, they blackmailed her and continued to assault her.
Both software engineers passed out of the college this year. The police have charged them with gang-rape, and also under the IT Act for filming the act & using it to blackmail her. Both are yet to be arrested.
The victim told the police that she had approached the management of her college in Agiripalli in Krishna district, but the officials did not inform the police. Instead, they asked the men to delete the video and apologise to the girl.
The management of college said that they took prompt action. They didn’t report the matter to the police to protect the identity of the girl & future of the students.
Vamshi and Siva Reddy shared the video with their classmates & contacts which translated into more trouble for the victim.
Two months ago the girl was threatened by a 3rd student, Praveen, who had a copy of the video. He demanded Rs. 10 lakh and sexual favours from her. The girl then approached the police and filed a complaint. Praveen was arrested, the other students will be arrested soon, police said.
