The girl said she lodged an FIR against Nivedu Sharma, a resident of Kharar, three days ago for repeatedly raping here. But the police are showing no interest in taking any action against the accused and he was not even detained by the police, she said. The victim claimed that she and her mother were visiting the Sector-39 police station every day but did not get any suitable reply.

The victim said the police officials concerned were not cooperative at all. Meanwhile, Mehar Kaur, the investigating officer, Sector-39 police station, said investigations are under progress and they are trying to arrest the accused.

On August-22, a resident of Sector-56 alleged that she was raped by a Kharar youth over a period of one year on the pretext of marrying her.

The victim alleged that Nievdu and she got married in a temple at SAS Nagar, but later when she went to Nivedu’s residence, he refused to acknowledge her as his wife after he was pressurised by his parents.

A case was registered after the victim submitted a complaint in this regard to the women cell. The women cell after inquiring the matter and getting medical confirmation forwarded the complaint to local police.

When we think of food on canvas, the pictures we conjure in our mind are the classic European still life with sensuous fruits arranged with care on a stemmed fruit dish and a backdrop of silk drapes. These would be painted so realistically that one would be tempted to steal a sliced watermelon, a bunch of grapes, a tempting green pear, a curved banana or the blood-red apple, better known as the forbidden fruit, from the frame.
