Rahees threatened to leak victims’ obscene photos
In an interview with India Today, the victim’s father said that Rahees came to his house a few months back to ask for his daughter’s hand in marriage.
“Rahees had said that his name was Vikas,” he added. The girl’s father turned down the proposal.
However, a few days later the girl went missing and was found by the police, the victim’s father told India Today.
On 18 July, Rahees accosted the victim’s parents and threatened to behead the father if the girl is not handed over to him.
“He warned me he will chop off my head,” the victim’s father told the TV channel.
He did not file a police complaint at that moment. However, in August he found out that Rahees had uploaded his daughter’s private photos on WhatsApp.
The victim was in a relationship with the accused and had eloped with him in June, Mirror Now quoted NK Jadaun, SP rural, Baghpat as saying.
