Two people were reportedly arrested for circulating the intimate video of a teenage couple in Mumbai’s Bhandup mall.
Following this, the teenage boy has also been arrested by the Mumbai Police after the girl alleged him for raping her.
It was reported that a sweeper in the Mumbai mall first recorded the intimate video of a teenage couple then shared the video in different Whatsapp groups, which ended up reaching the girl’s father.
A police official said in a statement, “The sweeper shared the video with the security guard and that’s how the video went viral. The security guard sent the video across to several other groups”.
The father saw the embarrassing video of her daughter after which he asked the girl about the incident, the girl got scared about the consequences and reportedly alleged his friend raping her.
Following this, the girl’s father reported the case of rape in the Bhandup police station.
