A 12-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a 28-year-old man who is already charged with raping at least two minors. He was out on bail when the incident was reported under Ghoorpur police station area of the district Sunday.
A senior police officer said the accused, Dilip Kumar alias Dilli of Dubhna village, appears to be having psychopathic tendencies, as he has been known to target minor girls in the area. The police have registered a case and are looking for Dilip who is absconding. The girl ventured into Dubhna village, barely 500 metres away from her village, to answer nature's call Sunday afternoon, police said. When the girl did not return in an hour, her mother began searching for her.
Station Officer (Ghoorpur) Jai Prakash Rai said, "She spotted the accused with her daughter in a pit near a brick kiln. As she raised an alarm, the accused left the girl and escaped." The villagers blocked the Rewa-Allahabad road demanding immediate police action. They also surrounded the house of the accused.
The girl was taken to a hospital in the nearby locality. There were bite marks and scratches on her body inflicted by the accused. Following a complaint from the girl's mother, a case under Section 376 (rape) and 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) of the Indian Penal Code and Sections 3 and 4 of the Prevention of Children against Sexual Offences Act 2013 was registered against Dilip. Rai added the accused may have been involved in more such cases, including that of attempt to rape.
"I have not been able to see his complete records. But from the manner in which he attacked the girl, it appears that he has psychopathic tendencies. We are investigating," said Rai. Superintendent of Police (Trans-Yamuna), Lallan Rai, said: "The accused in the incident has been named in at least two rape cases registered at Ghoorpur police station earlier. He was released on bail a few months ago. We are verifying if there are more cases against him."
