The youth has been charged with rape according to ANI. However since the provision was bailable, he was later released. "I have spoken to the Delhi Police Commissioner over the phone and directed him to take necessary action in this regard", Rajnath Singh tweeted on Friday.

Hindustan Times, owned by HT Media Ltd, is one of India's largest publications that provides unbiased news, analysis and features on politics, sports, entertainment, lifestyle and more.

Rohit has been arrested after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh intervened, calling out the Commissioner of Delhi Police to initiate proper investigations via Twitter.

A senior police officer said that the accused, identified as Rohit Kumar Tomar, son of ASI Ashok Kumar, has been arrested for assaulting two women on different occasions.

Tomar allegedly threatened her with the same kind of treatment if she did not follow her instructions. The girl is reported to be an employee of a call centre and a friend of Tomar's ex-girlfriend.

In the video, Tomar is seen thrashing the woman when she threatened to file a police complaint against him.

The woman filed the complaint after Tomar sent her a video 15 days ago that showed him assaulting a woman.


In the video, Tomar is seen dragging the woman and brutally assaulting her.

The person filming it could be heard asking Tomar to stop beating the woman.

Subsequently, the woman approached the police on Thursday and a case was registered at Tilak Nagar police station in west Delhi against Tomar, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Monika Bhardwaj said. The blows keep coming, on the woman's stomach, back and head, and he also pulls her hair.

The person who recorded the video was Ali, a friend and classmate of Rohit's, who works at this call centre.

The video since being posted has become viral on social media.

The cops have said that they have taken stern action.
