"Bunty has been booked for rape and under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO), and his friends under the relevant sections of IPC and the IT Act for their involvement in the crime," the police officer said.

He said the incident took place on Friday and was reported to the police the next day after the family of survivor (12), saw the video clip on their WhatsApp.

The survivor stays with her family in Mangolpur Kalan of Rohini in west Delhi. The family was shocked to see the video and immediately informed the police about the incident, the officer said.

"Bunty, who is a neighbour of the survivor, on the day of crime took her to some places in good faith in the locality.

"Finally, he took the girl to a community center and at a secluded place committed the crime in front of two of his friends. The scene of crime was identified through the video they had made," the police officer said.

The survivor's family also alleged that the accused's family members were mounting pressure on them to withdraw the case.

"Accused Bunty is a powerful person and his other family members have strong hold in the area. They are mounting pressure on us to withdraw rape case against Bunty after his arrest. They are also pressurising us to leave Mangolpur Kalan locality," survivor's mother said.
