Dance teacher held for rape, blackmail

A dance teacher has been arrested for allegedly raping a minor student and blackmailing her with an obscene video, the police said on Wednesday.

Rudra alias Sumit Ghosh (24) was arrested on Wednesday, following a complaint by the 16-year-old victim’s parents on Tuesday. The police also arrested Rudra’s parents for alleged involvement in blackmailing the victim.

“Rudra taught dance at his dance academy at Rajendra Nagar in Sahibabad. The victim had joined the academy a few months ago. The accused lured and raped her few days back. He recorded the incident on his mobile phone and threatened to upload it online unless she paid him,” said Sahibabad Circle Officer Rajesh Kumar.

When Rudra began demanding more money, the girl told her neighbour’s driver about the incident and he informed her parents.
