A 10-year-old girl would have never thought that she'd be a victim of a heinous crime and that too by someone, who she looked upon for protection.
The girl in question was raped by a sub-inspector posted at the Ardh Kumb Mela grounds on the banks of Sangam in Allahabad.
The cop who was allegedly having a lustful eye on the child from quite some time, barged inside a tent to rape the innocent kid.
A case of assault against the drunken cop has been registered who boozed despite the drinking ban for policemen. Drinking is also prohibited in Kumbh Mela grounds. The sub-inspector is arrested by the Alopi Nagh police as the Ardh Kumb area falls under this police station.
The cop allegedly entered the girl's tent at night and offered her sweets, after which he tried to undress her. When the girl objected to his demands, he forcibly stripped her and raped her.
The people of the area strongly protested against the incident. A local leader Virender Sonkar has sat on a dharna for seeking justice.
