It was alleged that accused entered into the house of the complainant and forcibly raped her minor daughter when she was alone at her house and made a video clip of the victim and was pressurizing her for establishing physical relation again.

Single-judge Justice Ajit Singh said that “After considering the facts and circumstances of the case and considering the seriousness of the matter and minor daughter was raped and entire family was asked to convert their religion, without expressing any opinion on the merits of this case, this court does not deems it fit to release the applicant on bail.”
The counsel for accused Rahman submitted that he is innocent and he has been falsely implicated due to party-bandi of locality and he is languishing in jail since January 26.
The Court opined that the allegations made were very serious and bail plea was rejected.
