HT Cor­re­spon­dent PANCHKULA: A 13-year-old girl of Beed Ghag­gar vil­lage near here on Fri­day al­leged that she was ab­ducted by a 40-year-old man and then raped by him for two days.

The ac­cused, Chandigarh res­i­dent Neeraj, has been ar­rested. He had al­legedly ab­ducted the vic­tim when she was re­turn­ing from school on Tues­day, and taken her to places in Hi­machal Pradesh and Chandigarh.

Af­ter the vic­tim’s dis­ap­pear­ance, Chandi­mandir po­lice had reg­is­tered an FIR under sec­tions 363 (kid­nap­ping) and 366 A (pro­cre­ation of girl) of the In­dian Pe­nal Code on Wed­nes­day. Po­lice are yet to add the sec­tion of rape to the FIR, as the vic­tim has not recorded her state­ment be­fore a mag­is­trate. The al­le­ga­tions were lev­elled by the vic­tim be­fore me­di­a­per­sons.

On Fri­day, res­i­dents of Beed Ghag­gar vil­lage them­selves tracked Neeraj and the vic­tim to a house in Sec­tor 39. They res­cued the girl, and nabbed and handed over Neeraj to Chandi­mandir po­lice.

“The med­i­cal of the girl has been con­ducted. We are yet to record her state­ment, as when she took her for record­ing her state­ment be­fore a mag­is­trate, she said she needed more time. The state­ment is go­ing be recorded under sec­tion 164 of the Crim­i­nal Pro­ce­dure Code,” said in­sepc­tor Jai Prakash, the SHO of Chandi­mandir po­lice.

This the third in­ci­dent of rape re­ported in the district, in the past four days. On Tues­day, a 14-year-old had al­leged rape. The ac­cused is yet to be ar­rested in the case. A day later on Wed­nes­day, a 50-year-old man was ar­rested for rap­ing a 52-year-old woman.
