IT professional rapes, films lawyer; suspected in 3 more cases

New Delhi : A 26-year-old IT professional has been arrested here for allegedly raping and filming a 23-year-old law graduate, the police said Thursday adding that they are probing his involvement in three similar cases.

Dushyant Verma, who stays with his parents in Maharani Bagh, was arrested April 20 for raping the woman at his house April 18.

The victim told the police that she had met Verma, a software engineer with EDAG – a German automobile design company in Gurgaon – over a social networking site in April and became friends.

Following this, they planned to meet up at some restaurant. However, at the last minute, Verma insisted that she should come over to his Maharani Bagh residence, saying that he had already ordered food.

Dushyant sent his servant out on the pretext of getting some food and raped her. He also filmed the whole sequence to blackmail her into maintaining silence over the incident, she said in her complaint.

“He threatened to put the clipping on the internet,” she said.

The victim told about the incident to her sister, who then took her to an NGO. A case was registered April 20 at the New Friends Colony police station and the accused was arrested.

The police said they have recovered at least three clippings of the accused having sex with different women from his laptop, but none featuring the victim.

“We have also recovered a CD in which the accused had merged the three clippings of his own with other pornographic clips. We are trying to identify the women in the videos and whether they would be willing to file complaints against the accused,” said a policeman investigating the case.
