The Haryana Police on Wednesday arrested a 14-year-old boy who allegedly raped a three-year-old girl late Tuesday evening in Hisar.

“A police team arrested the accused around noon from his home where he was hiding. The boy may be produced in a local court later today,” police spokesperson Chander Bhan said.

The latest shocker which came close on the heels of a series of gang rapes and murders of women in Haryana, only served to highlight the state’s notoriety as a province with a high number of sexual offences against women.

The girl’s parents who are labourers were still at work when the incident took place at around 7:30 pm. According to the complaint, the victim narrated the incident to her parents when they returned to the house. The parents then took her to women’s police station.

The investigation officer (IO), Saroj Bala took the little girl to a local hospital for medical examination at about mid-night and started investigation into the matter.

The family hails from Bihar. The girl was alone at her house when the teenager who is a neighbour, cajoled her to accompany him to another place and raped her.

The accused allegedly threatened the girl with dire consequence and fled from the spot. Police said the accused juvenile belongs to a middle class family.
