"A complaint was registered with us by the victim in which she alleged that she was being raped and threatened by her school principal for the last few years in the school premises," police said. "The victim told us that she was first assaulted in June 2017 when Singh called her to take extra classes after school hours. The principal took her to his office room and offered her soft drink laced with sedatives. After she lost her consciousness, Singh raped her and made a video of the incident," said the police.

Since then, Singh has been threatening the 27-year-old victim saying he would make the video viral if she did not comply with his demands. The accused has been arrested. Further investigation is underway.
