A minor boy was among three persons who raped an 18-year-old girl at Machhiwara on Sunday.

The police registered a rape case against the trio yesterday and also arrested two accused Gurinder Singh and Yadwinder Singh. The minor boy is yet to be arrested.

As per the victim’s mother, on Sunday evening she along with her daughter had gone to bring fodder for cattle. After collecting fodder, she asked her daughter to reach home and told her that she would come after an hour.

“When I was returning home I was shocked to see that my daughter was lying unconscious in the fields, I immediately called my husband and took her home. As she couldn’t regain consciousness she was rushed to the Civil Hospital, Machhiwara, from where she was further referred to the Civil Hospital, Ludhiana, where her condition is stable now,” alleged the victim’s mother.

The girl told her parents that when she was returning home, the three accused cornered her and forcibly poured some sedatives in her mouth and raped her.

Married man booked for raping 15-yr-old girl

Another sexual assault case was reported in Ludhiana in which the city police booked a married man on the charges of raping a 15-year-old girl. The accused had kidnapped the girl and raped her for three days. The Basti Jodhewal police registered a case against the man, identified as Jatinder Singh (32), yesterday.

The girl, a resident of New Kuldeep Nagar, told the police that Jatinder Singh was her neighbour and she developed friendship with him. Jatinder Singh had promised to solemnise married with her. On September 26, Jatinder Singh offered her a ride on his motorcycle and said he would drop her back home after an hour. Instead of dropping her back home, Jatinder Singh took her to some room where he raped her for three days.

On September 29, Jatinder Singh dropped her outside her home and fled.
