Brajrajnagar: A seven-year-old girl was allegedly raped in Brajrajnagar area of Jharsuguda. The matter came to light after the victim’s family informed the Jharsuguda Childline officials about the incident.
Following this, the Childline officials alerted the matter to Brajrajnagar police, who then registered a case under Sec 376 of IPC and Sec 6 of Pocso Act and launched a manhunt to nab the accused.
As per reports, the minor girl had gone to a private coaching centre on December 1 evening. As the minor’s father was away from home, her mother asked a youth known to her to bring back the minor girl.
When the minor girl returned home, she cried and asked her mother not to send the youth further to bring her back from the coaching institute. Though the mother repeatedly asked the girl about the matter, she remained mum.
However, the girl narrated the ordeal to her mother last night.
Later, the girl’s family then informed the Jharsuguda Childline’s officials.
