In a shocking incident, a Punjab Police constable sodomised the eight-year-old son of a migrant labourer at his Mohalla Gaddaipur house here on Friday.
The victim's father, Arjun Pandey, said he, along with his family, returned here from his native village around a fortnight ago. "On Thursday, we rented a one-room accommodation in the house owned by constable Sanjeev Kumar, who had also rented out more rooms in the same building to other labourers," he said.
Kumar lured Pandey's son, who was alone at home, to come to his room by offering him biscuits. The victim had come to the city in pursuit of education and was to get admission in Class 2.
"My innocent son was not aware of the ill designs of Kumar. He was brutally sodomised by the cop, who was in an inebriated condition. My son managed to flee from the room while bleeding profusely," Pandey alleged.
While fleeing from the place, the boy met his uncle, Tej Bhan, on the road. His parents were informed. The boy was taken to division No 8 police station, where the cops did not register the case saying the crime spot did not fall under their jurisdiction. The family was told to go to Maqsudan police station, where the cops asked them to take the boy to the civil hospital.
The constable fled from the scene after the crime.
