The victim complained to the police that she had been raped a couple of times in the past four months. The accused, who was nabbed on the same day the complaint was lodged, was sent in judicial custody after questioning.
Amritsar police commissioner Ram Singh said that since the victim was a minor, he immediately directed the Maqboolpura police station SHO to investigate the case on priority. The SHO went to the complainant's house and recorded every detail in the presence of family members. The police got the girl medically examined and recorded her statement under section 164 of the CrPC before a magistrate.
After the completion of investigations in the case, the challan was prepared and presented in court on Wednesday.
