An 11-year-old girl in Jamshedpur has alleged that her motherís boyfriend raped her on Tuesday.
The alleged incident occurred around 10pm at the outhouse of a bungalow near Golf Ground, Golumri, where the accused, Vijay Kumar (32), works.
The girl is currently admitted to MGM Medical College and Hospitalís gynaecology ward. Police are waiting for the girlís medical examination to confirm rape.
The minorís mother is reluctant to lodge a written complaint against her lover. She has been in a relationship with Kumar after her husband divorced her three years ago.
The girl in her statement to the police has said that on Tuesday night, she and her mother visited Kumarís place. He sent her mother to fetch something from a nearby shop and taking advantage of the situation, he raped her.
When the woman returned, she found her daughter bleeding from her private parts. Kumar was nowhere to be seen. The girl narrated her ordeal, after which the mother rushed to Golmuri police station.
OC Nehaluddin Khan, however, said: ďUnless a written complaint is filed, we cannot arrest the accused.Ē
In another incident in the steel city, a 14-year-old girl consumed pesticide on being scolded by her brother Mohammed Aftab alias Sonu at Gauri Shankar Road in Jugsalai police station area on Wednesday morning.
She is currently admitted at MGM Medical College and Hospitalís emergency ward. But she is out of danger.
