Hudkeshwar police have booked a 50-year old advocate on the charges of raping a woman, his own relative, and also threatening to ruin her life by uploading the obscene pictures of her on Facebook if she opened her mouth.

The 50-year old accused has been identified as Rashtrapal Shankar Naik, resident of Plot No. 742, New Mhalginagar, allegedly offered sedative-laced tea to the 38-year old woman, his own relative, in the month of July 2015. As the woman became unconscious, the accused Rashtrapal raped her. Later, he threatened to kill her if she disclosed his act to anybody. Moreover, the accused told the victimized woman that he has clicked the obscene photos of her and would upload the same on Facebook in order to ruin her life. The accused further warned the woman that if her husband sees the vulgar images, he will desert her. He is a lawyer by profession and nobody can harm him in any way. With these menacing words, the accused Rashtrapal Naik raped her frequently since the past one year. However, the victimized woman, probably fed with the atrocious acts of the accused, finally registered a case with Hudkeshwar police.

Based on the complaint, PSI Pande has booked the accused Rashtrapal Shankar Naik under Sections 376, 328, 506(B) of the IPC and launched an in-depth investigation into the matter.
