Pune girl rape case: Father arrested in Bihar, brought to Maharashtra

An FIR in the case was filed in Pune in the third week of March after the girl shared her ordeal with a counsellor on the side-lines of a school workshop on ‘Good Touch, Bad Touch’

The complainant alleged that on March 25, she was going with her daughter on a two-wheeler and the incident happened when they reached Sighpura road.

PUNE CITY Police, who are probing the case of rape and sexual abuse of an 11-year-old by her four family members, have arrested her 43-year-old father after he was placed under detention in Bihar. Her grandfather and uncle were arrested earlier while her minor brother was detained.

An FIR in the case was registered at a police station in Pune in the third week of this month following a complaint filed by a counsellor in her school to whom the girl opened up on the sidelines of a workshop on the concept of good touch and bad touch.

Meanwhile, a team was dispatched to Bihar for the arrest of the father. An officer from the police station said, “The investigation team detained the father from Bihar and brought him to Pune. He was arrested on Saturday. He was produced before a court and remanded to police custody until March 31.”

An officer said that as the girl had opened up about her sexual abuse after the workshop, the counsellor immediately informed the school authorities who approached the police. As the police were briefed about the case, the girl was sent for a thorough medical examination and was also provided with a counsellor. Further details of the abuse were obtained with the help of counsellors.
