The Hush Post: A shocking case has come to light from Theog in Shimla. A 12-year-old girl was raped for five days by her father.
According to the victim’s mother, who also happens to be the complainant, the accused raped the child first on May 17 and repeated the crime for the next five days. In fact, victim’s sibling also knew of the crime and later the mother too came to know.
The complaint was registered by the victim’s mother on May 24. However, the medical was not carried out for the next five days. The medical happened on May 29. What does the medical report suggest has not been confirmed, in fact, has been kept a secret. Reportedly, it will be presented only in the court, when sought.
Meanwhile, the case has been registered under the POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) Act.
The accused has been arrested and is in judicial custody in Kathu Jail.
As per the reports, a lady constable did try to influence the victim’s mother and the victim and tried to dissuade them from carrying out a medical. Though, details about it are very sketchy.
This comes close on the heels of Gudiya rape and murder case which is still a mystery for the most. Notably, Gudiya rape and murder took place about 30 km from where this crime happened.
