A minor girl was allegedly abducted and molested by a youth in Adliwala village, falling under the Rajasansi police station here. Though the incident occurred on May 29, the case was registered after the family lodged a complaint with the police yesterday once the efforts to reach a compromise failed.
The accused, identified as Babbu, son of Baldev Singh of the same village, was yet to be arrested. A case under Sections 365, 354-A, IPC, has been registered against him.
The mother of the eight-year-old victim stated to the police that on May 29 evening, her daughter went outside to buy some eatables but did not return. She said the family members looked for her unsuccessfully. At around 1.30 am, the girl reached home crying. She said the accused abducted her and subjected her to sexual harassment.
