A Ludhiana youth has been booked for raping a minor on the pretext of marriage. The victim’s father has lodged a complaint at the Jamalpur Police Station against the accused, Saajan Kumar. The police have launched a manhunt to nab the accused.
According to the FIR, Saajan Kumar lured a girl on the pretext of marrying her. The victim, a class X student, fell into his trap and eloped with him. However, she returned back home after a week after realizing his intentions.
The victim’s father stated that on December 28, his daughter had gone to the school but did not return home. He said that the family members searched her everywhere, but she was nowhere to be found. Subsequently, they lodged a complaint with the police. The girl returned home on January 4.
The girl told her father that Saajan Kumar had made a false promise of marrying her. He took her to a village near Kiratpur Sahib and raped her for seven consecutive days. She then somehow managed to escape from his clutches and reached home. Here she revealed her ordeal to her parents who then approached the police.
Saajan Kumar is still at large. The police have constituted search parties and are conducting raids to arrest the accused.
