Recounting her nightmare under an account ‘Punish My Rapist’, on January 25, the victim has demanded justice and advised other women to beware of talking to or socialising with people on social media.


The woman said that she had gone for drinks and party with Shah to a couple of places along with his pals, and after some shots of tequila, she felt intoxicated, as the accused had reportedly forced her to drink more.

She suspected that he may have laced her drink with something which blacked out her mind that night.

“I woke up to him raping me and despite my efforts to stop him, he continued and even slapped me thrice with intense rage, leaving me scared and intimated,” she wrote.

Shah also threatened her, but the next morning he rendered an apology, pleading to leave the episode behind — which she said meant “nothing” — and he went missing later.

The victim added that 12 days have passed since she was violated but he is evading arrest and has even filed for anticipatory bail as the police probe the case.
