A case has been registered against three youths here for allegedly raping a teenaged girl and blackmailing her on the basis of a video clip which they shot while committing the crime.
According to police, the incident took place some days back. The three accused took their 16-year-old neighbour to a house on Niwaru road saying that her mother, employed with a factory, was calling her. There they raped the girl and shot a video clip of the incident.
The trio continued to exploit her sexually and also demanded money from her. They threatened the girl that if she does not agree to their demands, they will upload the video on Internet, police said.
The girl did not disclose the matter to anyone. But yesterday she told her mother about it following which an FIR was lodged, ACP Jhotwara Nasimullah Khan said today.
The trio fled after the case was lodged and efforts are on to locate them, he said.
