Woman raped at knife-point
The accused, Vivek Patel, allegedly raped the 19-year-old woman in MP's Jabalpur region. He first sexually assaulted her in 2020, when the girl was a minor. After being released on bail in 2021, he approached the woman again and threatened her to withdraw the earlier complaint. While intimidating her with a knife, Patel and his friend reportedly blackmailed and raped her.
What did the police say?
As per Jabalpur police station in-charge Asif Iqbal, Patel repeated his crime but with another accused. The woman told the police that "the accused raped her at knife-point a month ago with his friend by forcibly entering her house.

Girl lured with Rs. 10
According to the police, Kunjram used to stay alone and lured her to the house by promising her a Rs. 10 note daily.
