New Delhi:

A 20-year-old Russian woman has accused the branch manager of a nationalised bank in Mathura of repeatedly raping her since she came to India in September. 

The two had become friends on Facebook. The man has been arrested, a senior police officer said.

"The manager of UCO Bank's Vrindaban branch, Mahendra Prasad Singh, has been arrested based on a complaint filed by the woman," Deputy Superintendent of Police Vijay Shanker Mishra said.

The woman has been sent for medical examination.

The woman in her complaint alleged that the manager "threatened me with dire consequences" if she disclosed his act to anyone.

According to the FIR, she came into contact with Singh through Facebook a year ago in November 2016.

After their friendship flourished the manager asked her to come to India and she arrived on September 17 and stayed in the temple town of Vrindaban, according to the FIR.

She alleged that on September 22 she was taken to a house where she was raped and that her ordeal continued since then.

She filed the complaint after she met another Russian woman who counselled her to do so.
