The bank manager has denied the allegations, saying that she filed the complaint after he refused to give her money
The branch manager of a nationalised bank was arrested for allegedly raping a 20-year-old Russian woman repeatedly since she came to India in September after they forged a friendship on Facebook, a senior police officer said.
“The manager of UCO Bank’s Vrindavan branch, Mahendra Prasad Singh, has been arrested based on a complaint filed by the woman,” Deputy Superintendent of Police Vijay Shanker Mishra said on Friday.

In her complaint, the woman alleged that the banker “threatened me with dire consequences” if she disclosed his act to anyone.
