The Uttar Pradesh police is searching for six people who raped a 12-year-old Dalit girl for three days near Kotwali police station area, reported PTI. From the six accused, five were minors, aged between 14 and 16 years, while the sixth accused was yet to be identified. SHO Anil Kapervan said that the accused first abducted the girl last month on June 26. He said that the victim was going to Kukra village in Muzaffarnagar district when the accused kidnapped her in a car. A case has been registered against the six accused on Wednesday.

Earlier on Wednesday, the police denied lodging the FIR in the case. Irked by police’s refusal, the victim along with her maternal grandmother protested outside the district magistrate’s office. They were demanding to lodge an FIR against the accused. Following the protests, the FIR was finally lodged against the six accused. Reports said that the girl used to live with her grandmother after her mother died a few years ago. Meanwhile, the victim has been sent to the government hospital for a medical examination.

On the other hand, the police formed a special team to nab the accused who have been absconding after committing the crime.

In another incident, a 2-year-old boy was sexually assaulted in the playschool on Wednesday, July 2. The incident took place in Kolkata and an FIR has been registered. The police initiated the probe into the matter under Pocso Act. The victim’s father alleged that the school authorities have deleted the CCTV footage from June 29 to July 2.

On the other hand, school principal denied the possibility of any such incident and said that the CCTV footage was deleted due to some unknown reasons. Reports said that there might be a possibility that the incident took place during the Doctor’s Day programme where the students and staff members were dressed like doctors and patients.
