In a yet another heinous act, a minor boy was allegedly repeatedly raped after being drugged by an ulema at a madrasa in North Delhi. This was informed by the police on Thursday.
According to reports, the accused, aged 24, is on the run and the police teams have been deployed to arrest him.
The victim’s parents lodged a First Information Report (FIR) on Wednesday.
In the FIR, the parents alleged that their son was raped multiple times by the ulema who used to call him to his room and drug him before sexually assaulting him.
The 12-year-old victim was studying at the madrasa since August 2021.
DCP North Sagar Singh Kalsi said, “We lodged an FIR after the complainant alleged that the boy was sodomised multiple times. The accused is still at large. We will nab him soon.”
“The boy has been living at the madrasa for months and studies there. He told us that his teacher was raping him. He went home with his father who came to see him this week and shared his ordeal with them. They approached us and we lodged a case. The matter is being investigated,” he added.
Following the complaint lodged, the accused has been booked under the sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act, 2012, criminal intimidation and unnatural offences of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
