A matriculation student was allegedly raped by a youth in Gaggomahal village. Though the incident took place around a week ago, a complaint was lodged with the police on Wednesday following which a case was registered.

The 17-year-old victim stated to the police that she studied in the village government school. She alleged the accused, identified as Daljit Singh of Soofia village falling under the Ramdas police station, used to stalk her on her way to the school while adding that the accused also used to make vulgar gestures towards her. The victim said she did not tell everyone about this due to social stigma and insult.

The victim said on September 17, she was alone at her home when she heard knocks at the door. She said when she opened the door the accused pulled her out and took her to some unknown secluded place on his bike where he raped her. She said though she raised the alarm he did not stop. Later, he dropped her far away from her house.

The victim said she narrated the entire incident to her parents, but they remained silent due to social insult. She alleged the suspect was continuously threatening her and her family of dire consequences and therefore they lodged a complaint with the police.

The police have booked suspect Daljit Singh under Sections 376 and 506 of the IPC, Section 4 of the POCSO act. Police authorities said that the medical examination of the victim was conducted on Thursday and further investigations were underway.
