According to authorities, a school van driver allegedly sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl at Tope Layout in Nagpur, Maharashtra, last month and threatened to go viral with her photos.
The driver’s detention on Monday brought the situation to light, they claimed.
According to local police officer Krishna Shinde, the girl’s neighbour is the accused Pawan Kohpare, 26.
He continued by alleging that Kohpare had taken the girl to a hutment, raped her, then dropped her off at school and subsequently returned her home.
According to authorities, the motorist continued to threaten her until she told her family about the event, who then called the police. Shinde claimed that Kohpare was using the girl as a sexual object by extorting money.
The Schedule Castes and Schedule Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act, and the Indian Penal Code were also used to file charges against the accused.
