Uttar Pradesh: Minor girl raped and abandoned, accused Salim and Zafar arrested

Child sex crime has become a major scourge with various media houses reporting such news week after week. In one such shocking case reported by Amarujala, two youths belonging to the Muslim community raped a 12-year-old minor girl. The incident occurred in Rohta village in Meerut Tehsil, Uttar Pradesh, where two youths named Salim (26) and Zafar (22), lured a minor girl living in their neighbourhood, who had visited a grocery shop nearby, into a deserted house where they raped her and later fled, leaving her wounded.

As confirmed by police inspector Subhash Atri, the victim’s father suspecting something odd had filed a missing complaint with the police, soon after which the girl managed to somehow escape and return home. The minor narrated what had happened to her parents, which led them to immediately approach the police. Soon after, the police launched a man-hunt and subsequently managed to arrest the two accused in Kanker Khera district.

The police later confirmed that the accused after being arrested were sent for medical examination to CHC hospital which later in its report settled that the two accused were involved in raping the minor girl.
