Mumbai, June 12: A 35-year-old woman Assistant Police Inspector (API) attached to a police station in the Western Suburbs alleged that her Facebook (FB) friend has been raping her by threatening to leak their private video clip.

Based on her complaint the Powai police on Friday booked three people-- the Facebook friend and two of his friends, for allegedly aiding the main accused.

According to the complaint, the main accused (name withheld to protect victim's identity) befriended with the victim on FB in 2019. According to her statement to the police, the accused took her to a room, spiked her drink with a sedative and then raped her, on the pretext of love, when she was unconscious.
