Nagpur: A minor and a woman were raped in two different incidents under the jurisdiction of Mankapur police stations. Cops have arrested a youth in one of the case and booked the accused in other case.

The duo developed friendship and started talking on the phone. Subsequently, the friendship took a romantic turn when Akash proposed to survivor. However, in the meantime, Akash started taking advantage of survivors and took her to several places including Seminary Hills and sexually exploited her for around nine months.

In May this year, when the complainant reminded Akash of his marriage promise, he reportedly abused her and subsequently stopped entertaining her.
