FARIDKOT: A 16-year-old dalit girl was abducted, raped and forced to eat some poisonous pesticide by an upper-caste man and dumped outside her house in a village in Faridkot district on Saturday morning.
According to the girl’s statement, she was abducted by three men around 11.30pm on Friday night from outside her house when she was going to a relative’s place nearby. Police have arrested two men, identified as Jagmeet Singh, the prime accused, and one of his accomplices Jagsir Singh. Search is on to nab Chhaina Singh, the third accused. The girl’s mother had approached the Jaito police station and filed a missing person’s complaint the same night.
The girl has said that Jagmeet raped her while the other two stood guard outside the room where she was taken. The girl said that she was threatened and forcibly made to eat something that made her unconscious.
She was found lying in front of her house by her parents who immediately rushed her to Guru Gobind Singh Medical College and hospital in Faridkot. The hospital staff said that she probably had some pesticide. Police have registered a case of rape, abduction, and wrongful confinement against the three accused.
