An 11-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her uncle in Sujanpur Town in Pathankot District.
The victim, a Class-4 student, had gone to her maternal aunt’s house to spend her vacations. A few days back, the victim’s uncle, under the influence of liquor, raped her and threatened her to remain quiet.
The accused, Jatinder Kumar of Ghumiara Mohalla Sujanpur, raped the victim for several days.
The victim’s father, Kamal of Uparali Lamini, told mediapersons that after his daughter returned home, she started remaining sick. “We took her to doctors, who could not diagnose the exact cause of the problem,” he added.
“Today (Wednesday), I took her to the Pathankot Civil Hospital, where the doctor, after the medical examination, told me that she was raped,” the father said.
“Kamal told us that the girl has narrated the entire story to him,” said Paramvir Saini, station house officer.
We have arrested Kumar under Sections 376 (punishment for rape), 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation) and 6 (definitions in the code to be understood subject to exceptions) of the Indian Penal Code, Saini added.
