A 15-year-old girl has been allegedly raped by a youth in Baba Bakala Sahib here. The victim used to work as a domestic help at the residence of the accused. The incident came to light when she complained of stomach pain and found pregnant.

The accused has been identified as Lovepreet Singh (22), a resident of Tehsil Complex in Baba Bakala. His father is a patwari.

According to information, the victim stayed at the residence of the accused as a domestic help. She alleged that the sexual assault had been taking place for past six months. “Whenever I was alone at home, he forced me to make physical relations. He had been threatened to eliminate me in case I told anyone about it,” she said.

The victim said that around two months ago, she, somehow, managed to slip away from the house and returned home. She said she felt stomach pain and when her family took her for medical examination, doctors informed that she was six-month pregnant.

The police have now registered a case under Sections 376, 506 of the IPC and 4 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offence Act.

Bhupinder Kaur, investigating officer, said the accused was yet to be arrested. Raids are being conducted to arrest him, she added.
