One person has been arrested for raping a minor girl and impregnating her at Jamugurihat in Assam’s Sonitpur district.
The accused has been identified as Atawur Rahman.
The incident occurred five months ago at Jamugurihat’s Dipholichapori area.
The accused had forcefully abducted the girl while she was on her way from her school and raped her. As per reports, Atawur had threatened the girl from reporting the incident to any of her family members.
However, the girl was suffering from severe stomach pain since the past few days, due to which she was admitted at the Tezpur Civil Hospital. The entire incident came to light after she was declared pregnant by the doctors.
In regard to this, the victim’s father had lodged an FIR at the Jamuguri Police Station. The accused Atawur was arrested as per the complaints lodged by the girl’s family.
