He had allegedly threatened that she would meet the same fate if she did not marry him.

Singh intervened after coming to know about the viral video in which the accused - Rohit Tomar - was seen pulling the girl by the hair and brutally thrashing her. Efforts were made to contact the girl seen in the video but she approached the police on Friday and gave a written statement.

Notably, no one, not even the woman in the video complained to police until Thursday.

The police have filed a case against the accused under Section 506 and 354 of IPC (punishment for criminal intimidation and assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) after the victim, Jyoti, lodged a complaint against him.

The 21-year-old Rohit Tomar, son of a Delhi Police Sub-Inspector, was arrested shortly after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh spoke to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik about the shocking incident and directed him to take necessary action in the matter. The girl is reported to be an employee of a call centre and a friend of Tomar's ex-girlfriend.

His friend who was filming the assault can be heard saying: "Rohit, stop it..." But Tomar continued thrashing the woman and abusing her.

The police said they had detained Rohit Tomar, and later released him on a personal bond.

The home minister's order came after the video went viral since on social media. Other men are seen passing by in the video as well.

A case on charges of rape and causing hurt has been registered at the Uttam Nagar Police station.

It noted that the victim and her family were receiving threats to withdraw the case.

The Delhi Police has been given time till September 17 to respond to the notice. On Friday, Singh took to Twitter to inform that he had taken the cognisance of the case and ordered the Delhi Police to act.
