Bhubaneswar: The man who was seen in a video that went viral on social media where two girls assaulted him alleging he was ‘unfaithful’ in a love affair, today moved the SDJM court here demanding justice and action against being humiliated in public.
The Nuapada resident has alleged that the girls were threatening him and blackmailing him along with their male friend who had recorded the video of the assault.
“I had a love affair with one of the girls seen in the video. Though I had told her several times that I have applied for divorce in my first marriage and the matter is sub-judice and I could only marry her after the divorce formalities are completed, she kept blackmailing me,” said the man.
“She has taken money, mobile phones, jewellery and watches from me over the past one year during our relationship,” he said.
He also alleged that the girls intentionally assaulted him after hatching a plot to blackmail him and then shared the video on social media.
The man has already attempted suicide twice claimed his lawyer, Bana Mohanty. He also said that the video is the evidence against the girls and the people who shared the video on social media first should also be tracked.
Earlier, a video showing the two girls assaulting the man in a park went viral on social media.
