Girl re­sists sex­ual as­sault, man throws her into well

Deccan Chronicle - - CITY -

A 23-year-old man on Sat­ur­day tried to sex­u­ally as­sault the daugh­ter of his neigh­bour, and when the girl re­sisted, threw her into an old well. Later, out of fear, he too jumped in­side the well.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the 17-year-old girl sus­tained in­juries and was shifted to hos­pi­tal for treat­ment. The ac­cused, iden­ti­fied as Da­soju Ra­jesh Chary of Up­pa­gal vil­lage in Zaf­fer­gadh of Jan­gaon district, was taken into cus­tody.

ACP Mad­husud­han said the girl is an In­ter­me­di­ate sec­ond year stu­dent in a pri­vate col­lege in Hanamkonda. She re­cently re­turned home for Dasara va­ca­tion.

The ac­cused, who works as a daily wage labourer at­tacked the girl on Sat­ur­day when her par­ents were out on work. He forced him­self upon the girl and when she re­sisted, he dragged her to a nearby old agri­cul­ture well and threw her in­side. Hear­ing the screams of the girl, the lo­cals came to res­cue her.

Out of fear, Ra­jesh too jumped in­side the dry well. The vil­lagers let ropes down the well and res­cued the girl. She was rushed to the hos­pi­tal.

The po­lice who re­ceived in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent reached the spot but were un­able to pull Ra­jesh out. A fire bri­gade was called for from Jan­gaon who man­aged to get him out.

The size­able crowd that had gath­ered by this time at­tacked Ra­jesh and started beat­ing him.

The po­lice dis­persed the crowd and took him to the po­lice sta­tion. A case was reg­is­tered and in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on.
