The Russian, who is travelling on a tourist visa with her mother, was in Vrindavan in Mathura for the past few weeks. In her complaint to the police, the woman had accused UCO Bank Manager Mohan Prasad Singh, a resident of Bihar, of calling her home on 22 September, whe she was raped repeatedly at the accused’s house.

“The manager of UCO Bank’s Vrindavan branch, Mahendra Prasad Singh, has been arrested based on a complaint filed by the woman,” Deputy Superintendent of Police Vijay Shanker Mishra told PTI.

Singh has, however, denied the charges saying that the woman was wrongly implicating him as she owed him some money. The police said they were checking the veracity of the charges through a medical examination. A probe has already been initiated, reported IANS.

According to the FIR, she came into contact with Singh through Facebook on November, 2016. They had frequent conversations afterwards. On his advice, she came to India on September 17 and stayed in the temple town of Vrindaban, according to the FIR.

Singh claimed that the woman had been persistently asking her for money and even showed the police a WhatsApp message of a few days back where the victim has asked for Rs 3,000.

Station House Officer (SHO) Kotwali, Subodh Kumar said that both the sides were trading charges and only the probe underway, would reveal “whatever was the truth”.
