Five people, including a serving Army personnel, allegedly stripped a girl in public, made a video clip of the incident and spread it thorough WhatsApp, in Jammu and Kashmir’s Udhampur area.
The victim lodged a complaint with the police three days ago, Udhampur SSP Suleman Choudhary said. He added that while one accused has been questioned so far, two others, who have also been taken into custody, are yet to be questioned. All five accused have been identified, he said.
He said the alleged incident took place at an isolated place near the banks of river Tawi in Jaganoo.
Police sources said the victim was with her boyfriend at the time. When the accused saw a local girl sitting at an isolated place with an outsider, they started misbehaving with her. When she resisted, they stripped her and roughed up her boyfriend, sources said. The girl kept insisting they had come for a picnic.
This is the second such incident in less than a year in Udhampur. Earlier, some people made a video of a local girl to blackmail her. When her parents approached the police to register a case, she committed suicide.
