RANCHI: The city po­lice on Fri­day ar­rested a 20-year-old man who al­legedly kid­napped a mi­nor col­lege girl and took her to Kharag­pur and raped her.

Kot­wali po­lice sta­tion of­fi­cer in-charge Shaya­manand Man­dal said the ac­cused Ra­jesh Mahto hailed from Jamshed­pur and stayed in the state cap­i­tal. How­ever, he was not em­ployed.

The ac­cused knew the girl who stayed at a pri­vate lodge in the state cap­i­tal. When the girl de­cided to go to her na­tive place near Jamshed­pur, the ac­cused of­fered to come along.

“As per the com­plaint, on Oc­to­ber 4 the vic­tim left for Jamshed­pur along with the ac­cused. But Mahto kid­napped the vic­tim and took her to his sis­ter’s house at Kharag­pur. Af­ter the girl was found miss­ing, her rel­a­tives reg­is­tered a case of kid­nap­ping on Oc­to­ber 7,” Man­dal said.

Fol­low­ing a tip-off, a po­lice team from Kot­wali reached Kharag­pur and res­cued the mi­nor few days back.
