Mathura (Uttar Pradesh, India), June 16 (KMS): A foreign national has accused a branch manager of an Indian nationalised bank of allegedly raping her repeatedly since she came to India in September, last year.
A senior police officer said that the 20-year-old victim, a Russian national, accused the man of raping her on the pretext of friendship on Facebook.
Deputy Superintendent of Police Vijay Shanker Mishra said that the manager of UCO Bank‘s Vrindaban branch, Mahendra Prasad Singh, was arrested based on a complaint filed by the woman.
“He raped me and was in a relationship with several other women. I met him in Vrindavan,” the victim said in a statement.
The woman in her complaint alleged that the banker threatened her with dire consequences if she disclosed his act to anyone.
As per the FIR, she came into contact with Singh through Facebook in November 2016. They had frequent conversations afterwards. On his advice, she came to India on September 17 and stayed in the Vrindaban town, according to the FIR.
The woman said that on September 22 she was taken to a house, where she was raped and that her ordeal continued since then. She said that the complaint was filed after she met another Russian woman who counselled her to do so.
However, refuting the victim’s claims, the accused said, “There was no contact between us for a year. She was asking me for money. When I refused, she filed this case against me.”
The woman was sent for medical examination.
