A 21-year-old woman, who befriended a 24-year-old man she met on the social media application, Instagram, was allegedly raped by him.

The accused, identified as Ikram Fancy, is a resident of Variav village in Gujarat's Surat. The woman apparently lives in the same neighbourhood and the two of them, who met via Instagram, became good friends and eventually decided to get married. However, the man kept making excuses to postpone the wedding. Irked by his lack of commitment, the woman tried to kill herself. Following this, parents of both the man and the woman agreed to their union. After the couple got engaged, the man would allegedly ask her to meet him in a hotel room, where he would forcibly have sexual relations with her. A few days later, he apparently decided to call off the wedding citing reasons involving his family.

The 21-year-old woman, who claimed that she had been cheated and also sexually harassed by the man, registered a complaint against the accused at the local police station. An investigation of the matter is currently underway.
