A SIX-year-old girl was al­legedly raped by a man, who later pushed her into a well and left her to drown at a vil­lage in San­gareddy district of Te­lan­gana, po­lice said on Thurs­day.

The ac­cused, Shiva Ku­mar, was ar­rested for the crime that took place on Wed­nes­day, a po­lice of­fi­cer said.

“The girl, who goes to a nearby pri­mary school, was raped and mur­dered by the ac­cused in Man­na­pur vil­lage in Mog­dampally man­dal” N Ravi, deputy su­per­in­ten­dent of po­lice, Za­heer­abad di­vi­sion of San­gareddy District, said.

Dur­ing the lunch break at her school, lo­cated in the neigh­bour­hood, the girl came home in the af­ter­noon and af­ter hav­ing her meal, went back to school.

How­ever, when she did not re­turn home till late evening, her mother launched a search and later reg­is­tered a miss­ing per­son’s re­port at Charag­pally po­lice sta­tion, he said.

Po­lice launched a probe and nabbed Shiva Ku­mar this morn­ing, Ravi said adding that he was taken into cus­tody.

“Dur­ing his in­ter­ro­ga­tion, the ac­cused told the po­lice that he took the girl to a nearby agri­cul­tural field and raped her there twice.

He also told the po­lice that later he threw the girl into a well,” the of­fi­cer said.

Po­lice, with the help of lo­cal peo­ple, con­ducted a search op­er­a­tion and re­cov­ered her body from the well on Thurs­day. The body was sent to a Govern­ment hospi­tal for post-mortem.
