Two arrested from West Bengal for raping 66 women, sent to police custody: Here are the details

On Saturday, the cops raided his house in Bandel and caught him red-handed with another victim. The police have seized his cell phone and recovered microchips containing pictures and videos of several women.

On Saturday, the West Bengal police arrested a delivery boy and his aide from Bandel in Hooghly district of the State, accused of blackmailing and raping 66 women.

As per reports, the two accused have been identified as Vishal Verma and Suman. Vishal, who worked as a delivery boy for an e-commerce firm, tricked female customers (especially homemakers) into sharing their number under the pretext of taking feedback. He would then lure them into video calling him. Vishal used to take screenshots of the video call and blackmail them. The accused forced the women to come to his house, where he raped them.

Vishal has confessed to the police that he has raped 66 women so far. He would often extort money, ornaments from his victims. However, his modus operandi was exposed when a victim from Chinsurah registered a complaint with the police. She informed that the accused had delivered goods to her house two months ago. The victim added that he took her number and forged a friendship with her. She said that Vishal had raped her when she went to his house.
