In yet another case of crime against children, a 9-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by her 21-yr-old uncle even while his wife was in the next room.
The shocking incident occurred at about 8 pm on Sep 17 in the village of Daram Takiki in NGH and an FIR filed at the Resubelpara police station on the next day, Sep 18. The accused person was arrested by the police on Tuesday.
According to police sources, the arrested 21-year-old uncle along with his wife had gone to the village of Daram after a request from the elder sister of his wife. The culprit is from Babukona but was currently residing in Boda Apal with his wife.
The elder sister, according to sources, had gone to Tura for some work and invited his sister and her husband home to look after the home and her children.
The FIR by the wife, who discovered the crime, stated that the suspect firstly gave some food to the victim and took the 9 year old into the kitchen.
“I felt something was unusual and tried to open the door but it was locked from the inside. I forcibly opened the door and saw my husband and niece lying naked in the kitchen. When I interfered with his illegal act he assaulted me by grabbing my hair. He later fled from the house,” stated the FIR by the wife of the suspect.
The suspect later ran from the place of incident to his wife’s house in Boda Apal where he allegedly tried to remove all his photos from the house.
“He was trying to abscond but was caught by the police on the same day. He has been arrested and forwarded to Court,” said a police source.
The victim later stated that the suspect had lured her with money for doing him sexual favours and had even tried to force himself into her. He had pulled down his pants and asked the 9 year old to sleep naked before molesting and sexually assaulting her.
