A delivery boy and his aide raped and blackmailed no less than 66 women. The West Bengal police has arrested them.
As per reports, the two have been identified as Vishal Verma and Suman. They belonged to Bandel in Hooghly district of the state.
Vishal, who worked as a delivery boy for an e-commerce firm, tricked female customers (especially homemakers) into sharing their number under the pretext of taking feedback. He would then lure them into video calling him. Vishal used to take screenshots of the video call and blackmail them. The accused forced the women to come to his house where he raped them.
Vishal has confessed to his crime of raping 66 women. He would also do extortion from the victims. A victim from Chinsurah, however, filed a complaint with the police and that’s how his modus operandi came to light.
The cops raided his house in Bandel and caught him red-handed with another victim. His cellphone was seized and microchips containing pictures and videos of several women was recovered. In one such video, he was seen holding a victim hostage at gun-point.
Suman, his friend, is a painter by profession, and committed several crimes together with Vishal. He has been recently been married.
