“We have registered a case under sections of rape and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act after a complaint from the girl’s father. We have now detained both the accused. They are being questioned by the police,” said RP Meena DCP.
A family member of the girl said, “She went to the toilet, which is hardly 50-100 meters from the house, after dinner but didn’t come back. After a wait of 15-20 minutes, we started searching for her and found her injured near the jungle. The girl told her father about the crime and was taken to the hospital. Generally, the victim is accompanied by her mother but on that day we allowed her to go alone as it was nearby. We never anticipated it would be unsafe outside. The victim has suffered a few abdominal injuries. We know the accused, who lives next door,”
A medical test confirmed that the rape had taken place. Police so far have arrested two people on Friday. One of the accused is said to be the girl’s neighbor, as mentioned by the family member. The investigation is still underway.
