The accused allegedly lured the girl and ferried her to an unknown place, where he raped her. Later, the accused sent the girl back home, and tried to pressurise her parents for settlement.

However, the victim's father, who is a vegetable vendor, approached the police, who he claimed also coerced him against registering a case. Following this, he approached Congress leader Gurinder Singh Basra, who took him to the police commissioner.

Finally, it was only after the top cop's intervention that the police registered a case and arrested the accused, who was identified as Sanjay Kumar, 23.

Victim's father alleged that Sanjay lured his daughter on March 22 and raped her. He also threatened her to remain mum over the incident. When his daughter came home, she was feeling sick, but did not reveal the matter to them.

"Later on Tuesday, Sanjay again abducted her and ferried her to an unknown place, where he raped her and sent her back to home on Wednesday. It was then that my daughter told me about the incident," he said, adding that Sanjay kept insisting to reach a compromise over the matter.

He alleged that he filed a complaint with Basti Jodhewal police station, but ASI Kuljit Singh, who was present there, did not register a case and pressurised him for settlement.

Congress leader Gurinder Singh Basra said the victim's father approached him, following which he took him to the office of police commissioner Paramjit Singh Gill, who directed the police to lodge an FIR.
