The son of a Pakistani diplomat was arrested for having sex with a 13-year-old Bronx girl he met through a social media app called Whisper, police sources said Wednesday.
Mehmood Ur Rehman Rahimoon, 20, was charged with rape because the girl is too young to consent under state law, the sources said.
He was also charged with acting in a manner injurious to a child less than 17 and with sex abuse.
Rahimoon, who is nicknamed Rey and lives in Scarsdale, met the teen in October on Whisper, a social media phone app where users can post messages anonymously, sources said.
For the next three weeks, they got in touch using Whisper and other apps, then met in person.
The pair got physical with each other but did not have sex until their third meeting, on Dec. 1, when they got a room at the Riveroad Motor Inn on Webster Ave., according to sources.
During the encounter, the teen’s friend waited in the bathroom, sources said.
At the same time, the friend’s father was waiting at her school to pick up her and the victim.
The worried father called his daughter, who lied to him, saying he and the victim were working out in a park with their running club. Rahimoon then took the phone and told the father the teens would be back at school shortly, sources said.
On Dec. 1, the pair got a room at the Riveroad Motor Inn on Webster Ave., according to sources.
That night, the friend confessed to her father, who contacted police the next day.
As part of the police investigation, detectives set up a controlled meeting in upper Manhattan Tuesday night. Rahimoon showed up in a vehicle with State Department consul license plates and was arrested, sources said.
The suspect’s father, Muhammad Mureed Rahimoon, is listed on his Facebook page as a community/welfare counselor for the Pakistani government.
The younger Rahimoon made statements incriminating himself, sources said, and does not have diplomatic immunity.
A manager at the inn said he was not aware of the investigation.
The Pakistani consulate had no comment, but the suspect’s sister, who declined to give her full name, called him a “good person.”
“It’s shocking,” she said. “I don’t believe this.
She also said her brother studies business at Westchester Community College. His Facebook page says he is originally from Islamabad.
