20-year-old booked for raping minor

Ludhiana: The police on Tuesday booked a 20-year-old youth for raping a minor. The 16-year-old girl said in her police complaint, “I was going to a nearby market to buy biscuits when the youth, my former neighbour, offered me a lift on his motorcycle on Sunday night. But instead of taking me to the market, he drove to his cousin’s house. There, he violated me and dropped me home on Monday morning. He threatened me against speaking about the incident.”
The minor’s mother said, “When my daughter did not return home for over an hour, we started looking for her, but to no avail. She returned home on Monday morning and narrated about the incident. The youth earlier used to live in our neighbourhood. A few months ago, he shifted to his cousin’s house.”
Inspector Brij Mohan said, “Raids are being conducted to arrest the accused.”
The police have registered a case under sections 376 (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation), 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC against the youth as well as his cousin.
