New York: A son of a Pakistani diplomat posted in the US was arrested for having sex with a 13-year-old girl he met through a social media app,a media report said.
The girl hails from Bronx. The accused met the girl through a social media app called Whisper, the nydailynews quoted police as saying.
Twenty-year-old Mehmood Ur Rehman Rahimoon, who lives in Scarsdale, was charged with raping a minor. He met the teen in October on Whisper.
The report said that for the next three weeks, they were in constant touch through Whisper and other apps, before meeting in person.
The pair got physical in their third meeting on Dec 1 in a room at the Riveroad Motor Inn on Webster Ave., the report said citing sources.
During the encounter, a friend of the teen waited in the bathroom, and at the same time, the friend’s father was waiting at her school to pick up her and the victim, the report said.
Rahimoon told the father on phone that the teens would be back at school shortly. That night, the friend told her father the real deal, prompting the dad to contact police the next day.
As part of the probe, detectives set up a controlled meeting in upper Manhattan Tuesday night. Rahimoon showed up in a vehicle with State Department consul license plates and was arrested, sources said.
The suspect’s father, Muhammad Mureed Rahimoon, is listed on his Facebook page as a community/welfare counselor for the Pakistani government.
The younger Rahimoon, who does not have diplomatic immunity, made statements incriminating himself.
The suspect’s sister said her brother studies business at Westchester Community College. His Facebook page says he is originally from Islamabad.
