Minor ‘raped’, two neighbours booked

Karnal, February 13

A 16-year-old girl was allegedly kidnapped and gang-raped by two youths in Pastana village of the district in the wee hours of Monday.

In a police complaint, the victim’s father alleged that his daughter was kidnapped when she went to answer the call of nature around 3.30am yesterday. When she did not return after a long time, they started searching for her. He said she was found unconscious near the house.

After gaining consciousness, she told them she was gang-raped by Arun and his friend, both neighbours, he added.

“We have registered a case against Arun and his friend under the IPC and the POCSO Act,” said Sub-Inspector Sunita. — TNS
