Married man repeatedly rapes girl on marriage pretext

TMB Correspondent

Thoubal: A 27-year-old married man from Thoubal Babu Keithel Mamang Leikai allegedly duped and raped a girl on several occasions.  

The accused has been identified as Robertson Mutum (27), son of Surbala Mutum of Babu Keithel Mamang Leikai under Thoubal Police Station. The rape victim hails from Kakching district.

According to a complaint lodged by the victim girl at Thoubal PS, she was acquainted with Robertson via social media Facebook in June this year, after which they physically met each other face to face in July. One day Robertson along with his two friends proposed her for a visit to Khongjom. Both Robertson and the victim girl met in a house at Khongjom where the former allegedly attempted to rape her. The victim fortunately escaped from the man on the day.  

At first, the victim had no any knowledge that Robertson is a married man having kids. The accused disguised himself as a bachelor and promised that he would marry her, the victim stated in the complaint.

Following the Khongjom incident, there was no any communication between them for some time. In the last week of July, the accused was waiting for her at the college gate when she came out after giving her exam and strongly urged her for a negotiation about the Khongjom incident. Despite her defiance, the man forcibly took her to Khongjom in his vehicle and raped her there. Following the incident, the man further started calling her via video call and threatened that he would expose the Khongjom incident if she does not pull up her cloth. The victim succumbed to the threat. The man started spreading the screenshots/ pictures of the girl on social media, defiling her modesty, it alleged.

On October 14, the victim lodged a complaint with the cyber crime police station. On the same day, the accused requested the victim for a meeting saying that he wanted to apologise for the incident. The girl came out from her house. Taking advantage of darkness, the accused forcibly took her to an unknown house and again raped her, it stated.
