The accused was known her as she had visited her friends house many times.    "I had gone to my friends house to meet her last year. When I reached there, my friend and her mother were not at home. When I inquired about my friend, her father who was alone in the house told me she had gone outside and would return after some time, so I waited in the house to meet her. Taking advantage of the situation he sexually assaulted me", the victim alleged in her complaint.   However, she did not reveal it to her friend or anybody else as the accused apologised for the incident. The victim said the accused raped her again when she was at her relatives house in Cuttack a couple of months back. He also filmed the act on his mobile phone. The accused then threatened to make the photos viral if she did not continue the physical relationship, as per the complainant.   Meanwhile, the marriage of the victim was finalised to a youth in the area. The accused came to know about the marriage and asked her to continue the relationship but the girl refused to have a relationship with him as her marriage was already finalised.   The accused then posted her obscene photos on social media last week. The victim filed a complaint after learning from her friends about her obscene photos posted on social media on Tuesday, said Panikoili police station IIC Lizarani Biswal.   Based on the complaint, police registered a case under the relevant sections of the IPC and IT Act and arrested the accused, Biswal said.
