Muzaffarabad: Teenage ‘rapist’ held
MUZAFFARABAD: Local police on Friday arrested a teenager for sexually assaulting a six–year–old girl near here the other day. His elder brother was also arrested allegedly for removing evidence of the crime. The incident occurred in Barura village to the south of Muzaffarabad city on Thursday afternoon, but the police came to know about it late in the evening after receiving a call from the Shaikh Zayed hospital where the victim was brought.
SSP Muzaffarabad Sardar Gulfaraz Khan told Dawn that the police recorded the statement of the victim’s father in the hospital at around 10pm and registered a case.
He said the girl – K – was sent by her parents to bring milk from a nearby house when a neighbour, N, 19, molested her, while the offender’s elder brother, Z, removed her bloodstained clothes.
The ill-fated girl’s father hailed from Swat but he had been working as a labourer in the fields of a local person for the last ten years.
