In a scary incident, a man in his twenties has been charged for holding his former lover captive as well as raping her.
The accused hails from Boisar in Maharashtra’s Palghar district.
He now stands arrested, claims the police.
Police said that the alleged incident occurred on the intervening night of February 10 and 11.
Police have identified the accused as Faisal Saifi, who had been in relationship with 21-year-old victim for quite some time.
But the relationship went awry, police said.

The woman then approached the local police station and lodged a complaint against Saifi.
