In yet another eye clamping sexual abuse incident against a minor, a 12-year-old class 6 girl was allegedly raped by her father’s friend in Rajasthan’s Bundi district five days ago. The incident came to light when the girl approached police on Wednesday.
The minor in her complaint stated that the accused is her father’s friend and frequently visited her home and alleged that he lured her with sweet edibles and took her to an isolated place where he raped her.
As per the reports, the accused, Jagdish Khateek, is a resident of Shiv Colony in Bundi.
The matter is being probed and the procedure to lodge a rape case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, is underway.
In a similar incident which happened a few months back in national capital Delhi, a 22-year-old man was arrested as he sexually assaulted a one-year-old girl after he lured her with sweets. The accused used to work as a helper at a chhole-bhature stall and was a frequent visitor to the girl’s house.
Accused had visited girl’s house and told her family that he was taking her to buy her some sweets. The girl’s father started to look for them when they did not return after 10 minutes. The naked child was found unconscious with a rope around her neck, gagged with a cloth and her hands tied at the accused’s house.
