The Ahmedgarh Sadar police today arrested a migrant youth, who was absconding after allegedly raping a 16-year old girl when she had come to fetch water from a tube well on Monday night.

The matter was reported on Tuesday afternoon, and an FIR was registered under Section 376 of the IPC and Section 4 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act against the accused, Sonu, a resident of Baatnaur in Meerut district, UP.

The accused was arrested on the intervening night of Tuesday and Wednesday when he was trying to flee.

The girl’s family was from Mandera village in Muzaffarnagar, UP, and was living with eight other families at a brick kiln at Begowal.

The police said the girl’s mother had asked her to fetch water from a nearby tube well, where the accused was hiding and later raped the minor. — OC
