Accused proposed to victim, she turned him down
In her complaint, the victim said she knew the 25-year-old accused since last year. In September 2018, he proposed her for marriage but the victim refused.
Thereafter, he started building pressure on her. He told her he would either "slash his wrist" or "smash his head" if the victim doesn't befriend him.
Eventually, the woman gave in and started talking to him.
After calling victim to his house, accused assaulted her
In the last week of February, the accused called the victim to his house in Sohna Road, where he allegedly sexually assaulted her.
"He told her that he wanted to marry her and asked her to speak to her parents about him. He also made a video of the act without her knowledge," said Aman Yadav, Assistant Commissioner of Police (Sadar).
Accused showed the clip to woman, she blocked him
Further, the victim said the accused showed her the video in the office on Friday. Shocked after seeing the clip, she blocked the accused on WhatsApp.
The accused then came to her house and asked her to unblock him. When the woman refused, he called her father and told him about the "relationship".
