A man was arrested in Gujarat’s Junagadh for repeatedly raping and impregnating a minor.
According to Keshod Police Inspector D.B. Koli, the 55-year-old accused Karsan alias Babu Malmer was arrested on Friday evening and will appear in court on Saturday.
The incident was only brought to light on Thursday, when the 16-year-old victim complained of stomach pain and was taken to the hospital.
Koli stated that when the victim was diagnosed, she was discovered to be pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl.
The girl’s parents stated in their criminal complaint filed with the Keshod Police Station that the accused raped her for the first time about nine to ten months ago and threatened to kill her and her family if she told anyone about it.
Taking advantage of this, he then raped her repeatedly.
Koli added that an investigation is currently underway and the accused will be subjected to a medical examination.
