“He blackmailed me on the basis of the camera footage and raped me for about a year. I somehow managed to return to Gurgaon, but he also reached here and forced me to return to Mumbai.

“He also threatened me and my sister with dire consequences in case we divulged his misdeeds,” the woman said.

She alleged that Srivastav had exploited a number of women after luring them on some pretext or the other.
