A man has been arrested for online raping his 21-year-old friend after taking her to a hotel under the guise of introducing her to family members

A man has been accused of raping his 21-year-old friend online after he took her to a hotel under the guise of introducing her to family members on Tuesday.

The accused, Arshdeep Mann from the village of Ber Kalan in Sangrur, had befriended the victim on a multimedia instant messaging application.

The Complainant stated, “On June 6, the Accused took me to a hotel on Pakhowal Road to introduce me to his sister and brother-in-law. He took me into a room and sexually assaulted me. He also cautioned me against telling anyone about the incident.

Deputy Inspector Rajandeep Singh, who is investigating the case, said the accused claimed he wanted to marry the complainant and therefore wanted to introduce her to her family members.

A complaint under section 376 (rape) of the Indian Penal Code was filed against the accused at Sadar Police Station.

    When delivering the verdict, the POCSO Special Court said the accused could not be allowed to remain in society because, once released, he risked repeating the same offence. The court also refused to grant clemency to the defendant, saying such a man who abused underage girls one after another did not deserve the same.
