"My daughter was on her way to a tuition class when the accused coaxed her into talking to him. He then administered an intoxicating substance to her, making her unconscious and took her to a flat where he forced himself on her," the girl's father said in his complaint to the police.

The accused also made objectionable videos and took pictures of the girl. He then threatened the girl of circulating the pictures and videos on internet if she told anyone about the incident, the father alleged.
