Six-year-old raped in Tehrathum
Mar 14, 2015-
A six-year-old girl has been raped by her neigbour at Thoklung-2 in Tehrathum.
Police said the incident, which occurred 11 days ago, came to light after locals could not settle the case in the village. The victim was taken to hospital only a week later as her health deteriorated, victim’s mother told the Post over telephone.
She said a local health facility trasferred the victim to another hospital following a preliminary check-up. “The victim’s private organ has been torn and is swollen,” Dr Kijan Maharjan said, adding that the girl is suffering
from insuppressible urination, pain in vaginal canal and inability to move.
Police, meanwhile, said they arrested 18-year-old Prem Kumar Shrestha based on a complaint lodged by the victim’s family.
Shrestha, who had suddenly disappeared from the village after the incident, was found hiding in his sister’s house on Thursday night. Police said they have also taken into custody Shrestha’s brother Yam Bahadur for helping the accused flee.
The minor was raped when she went to Shrestha’s room for charging a mobile phone, her mother said. Shrestha’s mother cannot speak and his father was not at home when he committed the crime, locals said.
