5‑YR‑OLD RAPED BY DAD’S FRIEND IN MATHURA
AGRA: A 49-year-old man allegedly raped the five-year-old daughter of his friend in a residential colony of Mathura, 58km from here, after a drinking binge on Monday evening, police said on Tuesday.
Superintendent of police Shravan Kumar Singh said the accused, Rajendra, had drinks at his friend’s house and raped the girl who was playing there. He escaped when she shouted for help. The accused, who is a father of three grown-up children, was later arrested by police.
“A case has been registered by the girl’s mother at Govind Nagar police station under Section 376 of Indian Penal Code and Section 5/6 of POCSO Act,” the SP said.
The mother told police that her husband was not in his senses as he was heavily drunk and she was inside the house when the accused targeted her daughter.
Singh said the accused has been sent to jail after being produced in court on Tuesday. The alleged rapist has no permanent occupation. “The victim has undergone medical examination. Further investigations are on. Both the accused and father of victim were known to each other,” he said. “The accused has denied allegations and claimed that he was being framed.”
