In a horrific incident, a six-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a nine-year-old schoolboy in Maithi Village of Pilibhit, UP.
As per the allegations of the girl’s parents, the victim, who belongs to the Jatav community, was raped by the 9-year-old.
The victim’s parents have approached the police and asked them to register the case.
The police have registered an FIR under SC/ST Act and asked for the girl’s medical examination, which was conducted on Friday.
The station officer Dalbeer Verma told Times of India that the police registered the case because the matter was between two communities and a group of people from the community had started protesting in front of the police station.
He said that otherwise it was difficult to accept that an 9-year-old could perform such a act.
“He and his family members have left the village to save themselves from any violence. The medical reports of the girl would clarify the allegations.”
While an official statement is still awaited on the case, All India Roundup reported that medical examination of the girl, confirms rape and claimed that the boy has been caught and sent to a juvenile home in Bareilly.
What is more, Dalbeer Verma, a station officer at Neuria police station, further told the that news portal that the boy looked scared and his initial reaction was that they were just playing.
“The boy looked quite scared. His first reaction to police questioning was, ‘khel khel mai ho gaya‘ (we were just playing),” Verma said.
