On Thursday itself, the south city police had lodged a case against Arjun. The police had laid barricades all over the district, said senior superintendent of police Surjit Singh Grewal. "I have constituted a special investigation team to catch Arjun," he said. "We will catch him in another 48 hours."
After the girl's medical examination, the police restored her to her parents. If the test report reveals rape, relevant charges will be added to the first-information report.
