Abhishek aka Babul Bihari, a Bhojpuri musician, was recently detained for allegedly raping a young girl and sharing her offensive images online. According to police investigations, the accused befriended the 13-year-old girl when he used to live in Rajiv Nagar and lured her in about two years ago. He allegedly led her to a hotel room, where he raped her and took pictures of her.
After the incident, the youngster allegedly grew apart from Babul Bihari and stopped talking about him to anyone, according to PTI. However, the victim’s parents started questioning her after the accused uploaded images of her on his Instagram account a few days earlier. The young girl went on to tell her family about her ordeal, and they hurried her to the police station.
The girl was given counselling before a FIR was filed against Babul Bihari. According to information provided by PTI, a case was filed under the Information Technology (IT) Act and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. According to Subash Boken, a police spokesperson, the accused was taken into custody shortly after the complaint was filed. “He was produced in a city court and sent into judicial custody today,” he added.
Abhishek, also known as Babul Bihari, formerly resided in Gurugram’s Rajiv Nagar. He performs Bhojpuri music and uploads videos to two YouTube channels. On his YouTube account, he has more than 27k subscribers. He publishes vlogs about food, travel, and other topics.
‘Dhori Me Tar Lagai Detau’, ‘Ke Kar Baap Ke Daar’, ‘Lehanga Utha Ke’, and more songs have all been sung by Babul Bihari. His songs have been criticised for being a little “demeaning” to women. For allegedly raping a youngster, the Bhojpuri artist recently grabbed news. More information is awaited.
