A Delhi University student was sodomised and had dogs set upon him for his friendship with a girl whose father allegedly got his henchmen to torture him, police here said Thursday. The father has been arrested and the hunt is on for his accomplices.

The incident came to light Wednesday, said a police official in Ghaziabad, neighbouring the Indian capital.

Detailing what had happened, the official said Robin Kasana, a student of Delhi University, was friends with a co-student. Both lived in the same semi-rural neighbourhood. When the father Rajesh Mavi - an influential, affluent man of the area - learnt of their friendship, he allegedly sent four men to abduct Robin.

The student was then taken to Rajesh's farmhouse in the Tila-Shahbazpur area where one of the men sodomised the student, unleashed dogs on him and even rubbed salt and chillies on his wounds, police said.

The culprits then uploaded obscene images on Facebook by creating a fake ID.  

The buzz of what had happened reached Robin's family who reached the farmhouse where they rescued their son but were also threatened with dire consequences.
Undeterred, they lodged a complaint with Loni police.

"We have arrested the main culprit, and raids are being conducted to nab others," said superintendent of police Jagdish Sharma.
