Pathankot: 5 booked for harassing minor Dalit girl
Seeing the troubles the boy had started giving to their uncle, they secretly sent the girl to her aunt's house in a Pathankot locality, which the boy again came to know and harassed them. The girl's uncle even tried to end his life by strangulating himself, Surinder alleged.
Surinder said that left with no option, they called her back, but the boy used to come daily with his friends and blew pressure horns before their house. "On May 16, a scuffle occurred in which the boy and his friends - Jimmy, Munish Gara and Bill - thrashed her cousin Pawan, who had come to her residence," alleged Surinder, after which they visited the Sujanpur police station, where they were allegedly misbehaved with.
"We have learnt that Pathankot SSP Rakesh Kaushal has taken the case in his hands and has booked all five accused," he said.
When contacted, Kaushal said police had booked all five accused under sections 454, 148, 149 and 323 of the IPC and the main accused Vicky had been arrested.
The SSP said he would ensure justice to the girl and her family.
