The matter came to light when the victim’s Father who earns hand to mouth said he started behaving very differently. “He lost interest in everything, behaved unusual which became my concern. After much of coaxing and convincing he opened up and narrated his ordeal,” said the boy’s 45-year-old father.
Claiming that his best friend’s mother forced herself on him, made an obscene video featuring him and blackmailed him into having a physical relationship with her for the past three months, a 16-year-old boy last week filed a written complaint with the RCF police station. The shocked RCF police have opened a preliminary enquiry into the matter.
The boy, in his complaint, says that around three months ago, he had gone to meet his best friend at his residence in Chembur. There, his friend’s mother said his friend was not at home, and asked him to come inside and wait.
The boy alleged that the woman offered him a soft drink spiked with some chemical which made him lose consciousness. That was when his friend’s mother allegedly stripped him, forced herself upon him, and recorded a video of the act. The complaint says that the woman used the video to blackmail him, calling him to her house regularly and forcing him into sexual acts with her.
The matter came to light when the victim’s parents saw changes in his behaviour and inquired with him as to causes. “My child is in Standard 10 and has been a good student, but of late I saw a lot of changes in him. He looked scared and his health was deteriorating,” said the boy’s father, a tailor by profession.
The father added “Initially, he did not respond to my enquiries, but later he told us the whole thing. He said that the woman would also take him on outings. Moreover, she claimed that she was pregnant and that she would accuse him of rape if he ever told anybody what had happened.”
Speaking about the police complaint, the father continued, “The senior police officials were very helpful, they instilled faith in my child and told him to record his statement so that they could take action against the woman,” said the victim’s father.
The RCF police have recorded the statement of the parents, victim boy who is studying in SSC and regisrered an Sources said the FIR was registered late Wednesday evening. IPC sections of rape, threatening, blackmailing and POSCO have been invoked as the victim is a minor.
