Hubballi: A minor girl was raped, and the accused threatened her not to speak out about it.
She kept silent and did not tell anyone what had happened to her out of fear.
However, when she missed her period and began to exhibit pregnancy symptoms, her tummy began to swell. Her parents became concerned and began to think that something was wrong with her. When her parents confronted her, she disclosed the heinous crime and informed them that she had been raped by her neighbour.
Police said that she was raped by the neighbour in the month of July and she told she was in fear as the accused had threatened her. The parents lodged the complaint on October 29.
The parents went to the police station and filed a complaint against the accused. The 35-year-old accused was apprehended by Kasabapet police. He was booked under the POCSO Act.
