IIT Kanpur girl alleges rape by IAF officer; police files FIR against him
In a shocking incident, a student of IIT Kanpur has lodged an FIR against a man for allegedly raping her over the pretext of marriage after forging friendship on the social media site Facebook.

The shameful incident took place in the girl’s hostel located inside the premises of the institution.

In connection with this incident, an FIR has been filed by the UP Police against Sitanshu, a resident of Bihar. The crime took place on January 6.

Police informed that the victim and the accused, who is allegedly employed with the Indian Air Force (IAF), were friends for the last six months.

Sitanshu, who used to regularly visit at the girl’s hostel and meet the victim often, had allegedly promised to marry the girl but later ditched her, the police added.

Sitanshu's sister, brother-in-law and a friend have also been booked in this case.

"An FIR has been lodged against four people in the case,” senior sub-inspector, Kalyanpur police station Parshuraj told the Times of India.

According to the sub-inspector, a case has been registered under Sections 376, 504, 506, 354B and 120B of the IPC against the accused Sitanshu who is supposedly associated with the IAF.

However, the police have yet to ascertain his rank in IAF. The accused had no base in Kanpur but often used to visit the victim, said the police sources.
