Youth held for nurse assualt

Bokaro, June 1: A 23-year-old man was arrested today for allegedly raping and assaulting a nurse yesterday.

Dulal Rajwar was rounded up from his native village, Jhabar, before he could flee.

According to sources, the 22-year-old victim who works at Jhabar primary health centre in Chadankyari block was returning home ó which is about 4km away ó from work when the incident occurred around 5.30pm.

Dulal, who was following the woman, accosted her with a dagger when she reached a deserted spot between Jhabar and Vrindwanpur, and raped her.

Her cries for help went in vain as there was no one around. Dulal also punched her in the face and upper abdomen and threatened her of dire consequences if any complaint was lodged with health officials and police. Thereafter, he escaped to his village, where he changed his clothes.

The victim somehow managed to report the incident to her senior doctors and later, Chadankyari police. When the news reached Bokaro civil surgeon Mithilesh Kumar, he contacted top police officers, who swung into action.

Two doctors, who conducted medical examinations on the woman, confirmed rape and physical assault.

Although the victim did not know Dulal, her descriptions helped police, who zeroed in on the culprit this morning even as he was contemplating to flee. During interrogations, Dulal admitted to the crime.

Police also found out the clothes with stains that Dulal was wearing at the time of the rape. Bokaro SP Saket Singh confirmed the arrest. ďInvestigations are on,Ē he added.
