Pahalgam: Girl accuses neighbour of raping her
Police Arrest Accused, Register Case
Islamabad (Anantnag), Jan 7: A 20-year-old girl from Pahalgam area of this south Kashmir district Monday accused her neighbor of raping her. Police have arrested the accused and registered a case.
Police reports said the accused Mushtaq Ahmad Hajam son of Abdul Rashid from Frislan village of Pahalgam allegedly sneaked into the house of the girl (name withheld) in the intervening night of December 31-January 1 and physically and sexually assaulted her.
“On January 2, the victim and her family members lodged a complaint with police and narrated the unfortunate incident,” said Station House Officer (SHO), Police Station Pahalgam, Tariq Ahmad.
He said taking cognizance of the complaint, they swung into action and arrested the culprit on the same day.
“The FIR (01/2013) under sections 376 (rape), 451 (house trespass to commit offence) and 452 (house trespass with preparation for assault) of the Ranbir Penal Code has been registered against the accused,” the SHO said.
He said the accused was subsequently produced in a court and is now on police remand. “The statement has been recorded under 164-A of the Cr Pc and the Challan will soon be produced,” Ahmad added.
The incident is the second of its kind in only a week’s time in South Kashmir. Earlier this month the family members of 13-year-old minor girl from Shopian district alleged that she was abducted, drugged and raped by a 32-year-old man at his house following which the man was arrested and a case lodged against him. In a similar incident, in November last year, a girl from Kanjimula village of Shopian district alleged her relative and his accomplices of abducting and gang raping her. The incident sparked off massive protests in the area following which all the accused were detained and a case was lodged against them. A court recently denied the bail to the accused.
