MP: 15-year-old raped on camera; cops track 25 & get video deleted | Bhopal News

BHOPAL: About 25 people have been rounded up in a village in MP’s Damoh district after the video of a minor’s rape went viral.
After arresting the alleged rapist and a 15-year-old boy who shot the video, police began tracking down everyone who the rape video had been forwarded to, and deleted it. Police say they will ensure the video is deleted on every phone it was sent to.
The girl was raped in the boy’s home on September 22, said police. After he took a video of it, he and the main accused, 20-year-old Arun Patel, allegedly began blackmailing the girl.
The rape video began circulating in a WhatsApp group in the village, about 70km from Damoh town, on Friday. Police swung into action as soon as they tipped off about it. In an operation lasting all Friday night and into Saturday morning, police rounded up at least 25 people and got the video clip deleted. “We took the help of cyber cell and all members of the WhatsApp group were rounded up,” a police officer said. Damoh additional SP Shivkumar Singh said the accused — Arun Patel and the boy — were booked under IPC 376 and POCSO Act.
