The girl in her statement to police had claimed that on January 29 she received a call from Vijay Fuke at 9:40 am. Fuke asked her to meet him near an open space in Dombivli. "Fuke then took her in an auto-rickshaw to a friend's place. Fuke then showed her a morphed naked picture and raped her. Meanwhile, Tushar Kasbe who was present in the flat shot the act. Later showing the video and threatening her, Kasbe, Chetan Rathod and Bhavesh Mhaske forcefully raped her from time to time," she added in her statement to police claiming Fuke used to contact her but she didn't use to entertain him and delete all the numbers of her friends.
