Pune Vaibhav Sarode (24), the suspect arrested in the Hinjewadi MMS clip case, was arrested in another rape case registered with the Nigdi police by a 19-year-old girl. Sarode was arrested on March 25 by the Hinjewadi police following leads during the interrogation of a 19-year-old, Shailesh Modgule from Gaurwadi, the prime suspect involved in filming couples on mobile phone, while forcing them to have sex.

The complainant stated that in November 2007, Sarode had forced her to have sex in a car at the parking lot of Ganesh Vision theatre in Akurdi. "Sarode gave me some soft drink after consuming which I fell unconscious.

Sarode then raped me and made an MMS clip of the act. He threatened me that he would show the clip to his friends and broadcast it over television. He used the clip as a blackmailing tool. Later also Sarode invited me to his house and raped me several times at different locations in another car (sic)," the girl mentioned in her complaint.

Sarode has been arrested by the Nigdi police in this case under section 376 (rape) of the Indian Penal Code and section 67 of the Information Technology Act. Sarode's custody was transferred to the Nigdi police as he was currently lodged at the Yerawada jail in connection with the Hinjewadi case. Police Inspector R P Kunte is investigating the case.
