A 25-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly raping a nine-year-old girl in the Chaksu area of Jaipur.
According to Rajasthan Police, the accused has been identified as Kamlesh Meena.
On Sunday evening, a girl went missing in the Kotkhawada area of Chaksu.
Family members and villagers found the girl lying unconscious in a pool of blood in a secluded area on the outskirts of the village.
The family members, with the help of locals, rushed the girl to the nearest government hospital where the doctors informed the minor’s relative that she was raped by someone.
The family members then filed a complaint with the Kotkhawada police station.
“We lodged an FIR under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and POCSO Act against unknown criminal for abducting and raping the minor,” said Kotkhawada police station Jagdish Prasad Tanwar.
Tanwar further said that a police team was formed and rushed to the incident site for the probe.
“We collected all evidence from the spot and took the help of the forensic experts to collect scientific evidence to nab the minor’s perpetrators,” he added.
The officer further said that during their probe, they learnt that the minor was last seen with Kamlesh, who was under the influence of alcohol.
“Based on the input we detained Kamlesh. During questioning Kamlesh confessed raping the minor,” added the officer.
Kamlesh took the girl to a secluded place and raped her for hours.
Kamlesh, on Monday, was produced at a POCSO court in Jaipur and sent to jail.
The minor girl is being treated at a government hospital.
