Kanpur: A 25-year-old MBA student was allegedly raped by her senior in college, who also filmed the act and blackmailed the victim, police said here on Tuesday.

The victim, a resident of Indranagar area in the city and studying in a private college, had befriended her senior Ajit Singh a year ago, Inspector Kamal Yadav, Kalayanpur police station said.

According to the victim, three months ago her father, a cancer patient, had to be taken to Kolkata for treatment. She was staying back at her house with a relative when the accused asked her to come to his house, on the pretext of giving her some study material.

Singh sexually assaulted the girl and also filmed the act, police said, adding that the accused threatened the victim with the video and raped her on several other occasions.

The victim lodged a complaint against Singh, son of Mathura police inspector Manoj Singh at Kalyanpur police station, after her parents returned yesterday, Yadav said.

Prima facie, it seems that the case involves spurned lovers but we have registered a case against Singh and efforts are on to arrest him, he added.
