Almost 36 hours after the alleged kidnapping and rape of a 15-year-old girl in a moving car, the Rohtak police have arrested a juvenile for the crime.
“A 17-year-old boy of Bahadurgarh in Jhajjar district has been arrested for raping the minor,” said Rotak superintendent of police (SP) Shashank Anand.
Rohtak woman police station in-charge Garima said that the juvenile, who is a Class X student, was staying with his uncle in Rohtak.
In the police complaint, the victim’s father had accused two unknown persons of raping and kidnapping the girl when she was going for tuition on Thursday evening.
Now, the police claim the victim named the accused, who lives near her house. Cops have also accessed telephonic conversation between the victim and accused.
“The victim was not supporting the investigation earlier, but during the second counselling she told the name of the accused and also said that he was alone when he kidnapped and raped her,” said the SP.
