An FIR has been registered against five persons for allegedly sodomising a 16-year-old boy over a period of time. The five accused include the boy's dance trainer.
The victim's family has also alleged that one of the accused clicked photographs while sodomising the boy.
"The complaint says that the minor was sodomised in parks and near the railway station. The accused also blackmailed the boy and demanded money from him," said VS Yadav, Sihani-Gate station officer.
When the boy asked for Rs. 1,000, his family became suspicious.
The boy later told his father about the incident.
The victim, who is a student of Class 10 at a private school in Ghaziabad, has alleged that was being exploited by the five accused since February, when he went to the attend the classes of a private dance trainer, who is also friendly with the other accused.
"We have lodged an FIR and teams have been sent to nab the accused," Singh said.
Months on, no sign of absconding girls
The six girls who fled the Government Observation Home for Juvenile Girls in four separate incidents still have not been found.
The girls, who were in the age groups of 10 and 18 years, ran off from the facility, which was opened in Ghaziabad's Raj Nagar area at a rented accommodation in April, 2009.
Although the observation home staff immediately informed the Kavi Nagar police station after every incident, the girls have still not been traced.
"We lodged police complaints, conducted preliminary inquiries, and also apprised our directorate of the incidents, but the girls are still untraceable. Some of them even had a criminal background," said Rajeev Sharma, district probation officer (DPO), said.
