Two days after a six-year-old girl complained of sexual assault by her tutor’s husband, the police have finally registered a case of attempted rape and launched a manhunt against the accused.
The accused identified as Kulwinder Singh of Lehri Colony of Mundian Khurd has been booked under Sections 376/511 (attempt to rape) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 4 of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act of 2012.
Kulwinder, however, is still at large. The kin of the six-year-old girl had earlier alleged that the police were initially reluctant to register a case and had allegedly pressurised them to arrive at a compromise. However, when contacted, ASI Balbir Singh, incharge at police post Mundian Kalan, had said that family had themselves gone back without registering a complaint.
The girl was allegedly assaulted at the tuition teacher’s house on August 10 by the accused, who was alone at home at the time of the incident.
