Don't rape if you have a Facebook account, your victim might track you down

A 37-year-old woman has alleged that she was raped at gunpoint in a moving car earlier this month while returning from a nightclub here. The woman claimed that she later tracked down the accused on social networking site Facebook.

The woman has also accused the Park Street police of misbehaving with her when she had gone there to lodge a complaint.

According to the woman, she was offered a lift by a man whom she had befriended at the nightclub; three other men were also in the car. The woman said one of them, whom she identified as Sarafat Ali, pinned her down, placed a pistol’s barrel in her mouth, and allegedly raped her before abandoning her near Park Hotel.

While the incident took place on February 5, the woman said that she went to the police on February 9, as she was in a state of trauma.

In the complaint, she has identified the other three men as Azhar Ali, Luvi Gidwani and Salman.
