10 booked for illegal detention, rape of minor girl


NAGPUR: Khaparkheda police of Nagpur rural on Friday night booked 10 persons, including five members of a family, on the charges of detaining a minor girl and sexually tormenting her in their house at Chankapur for almost two years. The girl managed to flee the house and with the help of a social worker and scribe, lodged a complaint with police. Two accused were arrested.

The offences of rape, assault, kidnapping and other were registered against Yogesh Yadav, his brothers Ashish, Akhilesh, their mother Kaushalya, sister Sarita and others, including an advocate, for their alleged role in the exploitation and forceful detention of the minor girl in their house for almost two years. The minor belongs to other community.

According to police, the victim used to be tortured by her father and step mother at her home at Chankapur. This prompted the 14-year-old girl to flee with Yogesh Yadav, who had promised to marry her after she would turn 18, police said.

Police informed that Yadav took her to Delhi and stayed with her at one of his friend’s house. He attempted raping her in Delhi. Then he brought her back to his house in Khaparkheda and raped her on the pretext of marrying her. Sources said, his family, including his father, brothers and sister, also started beating and torturing her.

She, however, managed to flee the house and seek assistance from a social worker and scribe, Rahul Tiwari, at Chankapur itself. They helped her to lodge a police complaint against all the accused.
