A fifteen-year-old mentally challenged girl was raped by unidentified persons in Loni Kalbhor area of the district and is two months pregnant now. The Loni Kalbhor Police registered a case under IPC 376 (rape) and relevant Sections of Protection of Children Against Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act against unidentified persons and has launched a massive manhunt to trace the suspects.The incident has sent shockwaves in the area with residents demanding the immediate arrest of the culprits.

Police officials said that the victim is two months pregnant now and that it was her mother who lodged the case. Her parents had come to Loni Kalbhor in search of odd jobs and are currently working as manual labourers. Both of them worked at different places and earned a living for the family. Since the girl is mentally challenged, her speech capacity is also limited and hence, she was not able to corroborate much into the details of the rapists, police said.

Since the girl did not get her periods for two months, her worried parents took her to a government hospital. On examination, the doctors informed the parents that she was two-month pregnant. Police inspector BA Kondubhair and assistant police inspector Srikant Ingale are investigating the case.
