A 17-year-old boy and a 26-year-old woman who met on Facebook accused each other of sexual assault, reported India Today.

The case in Delhi came to light when the juvenile was booked for rape charge and the woman under POCSO Act.

According to reports, they met on Monday and went to a hotel in Vasant Kunj area in Delhi. Later, the woman called the police and accused the boy of raping her.

When the police reached a three-star hotel, the woman and the boy were found locked up in a room.

The woman alleged that the boy took her to the hotel and raped her after offering her a spiked drink. The boy, however, denied the woman's claims.

Cross FIRs have been registered under relevant sections of IPC and POCSO Act, he said, adding police suspect it to be a case of "honeytrapping".

No arrests have been made so far.
