On Saturday, complaint was filed by a 23-year-old woman, a resident of Chinchwadgaon who hails from Latur district.
On May 31, the woman posted a video of Delhi murder case where a 16-year-old girl was murdered – allegedly by her boyfriend, a 20-year-old man – on May 29. However, upset over the video, Gorakha via social media threatened to kill her.
