On August 14, the accused, identified as Govind Ahirwar, offered to drop the woman to college. On the way, he picked up some food and laced it with sedatives. After consuming the food, the woman -- in a semi-conscious state, was taken to the accused's rented accommodation, where she was allegedly raped. The accused also filmed the act to blackmail the woman.

"The accused while dropping the woman to college stopped his car near an eatery and bought some food. He laced the food with sedatives, without the woman getting a whiff of it, and took her to his rented accommodation in Nishatpura when the woman was almost semiconscious. He then raped her and also allegedly filmed the act," police said.
