A 22-year-old man accused of rape in Kota, Rajasthan, has been allegedly tied up, beaten and robbed by distant relatives. A video of this has gone viral on social media. Meanwhile, police have now registered a case in this regard.
Youth accused of rape
According to sources, the incident took place on September 14. Two days later, the young man’s distant relatives, his uncles and aunts, lodged a complaint with the police. This time, he has claimed that the 22-year-old man broke into his house and raped the woman. He has since been arrested and jailed.
The elder brother of the concerned youth, however, has told a different story in this regard. He claimed that on the evening of September 14, the young man was invited by his distant relatives to his home in Jagpura village in Kota district. They then tied his hands and feet and held him hostage overnight.
Mobile phones and money were also snatched
The elder brother of the youth also said that his relatives snatched his mobile phone, identity card and Rs 22,000 from him. Not only that, he was allegedly beaten and forced to drink urine. The young man’s brother further said that his aunt and uncle recorded a video of the alleged beating and it was uploaded online by mistake.
Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Praveen Jain said that a case has been registered against the couple and another on the basis of the video. The matter is under investigation. Action will then be taken.
