Guwahati Police on Saturday arrested one person and took into custody a minor boy on charges of allegedly raping a minor girl inside a car after luring her in the pretext of taking her for a drive at Sonapur.
The girl, who belonged to a tribal community, reportedly got into a car on the invitation of a friend from the same area on Friday evening after the latter requested her a drive. The person got a friend of his, a minor boy, into his car and the duo allegedly raped the girl inside a Maruti Alto, NMSAF Haque, Joint Commissioner of Police, Guwahati, said.
Haque said while a case was registered at the Sonapur police station following a complaint lodged by the girl and her parents, two persons were picked up, one of whom turned out to be a minor. “While we have arrested one person, the other being a minor has been forwarded to the concerned authorities for steps under the Juvenile Justice Act,” Haque said. The victim girl, also a minor, was sent for medical examination, he added.
