RK Puram landlord held for molesting Manipuri girls
In a shocking incident, two girls from Manipur were allegedly molested by their landlord in South Delhi’s R.K. Puram area on Sunday evening. On the basis of the girls’ complaint, the police registered a case under sections of 354 (molestation) of the IPC and arrested the accused.
A senior police officer said 45-year-old accused Mahendra hailed from Mohammadpur village in Bhikaji Cama Place. “The incident came to light on Sunday evening around 5.15 pm when the girls made a call to the police control room (PCR) and informed them about the incident. They told the police that Mahendra, who was in an inebriated condition, knocked their door and molested them when they came out of the room,” the officer said.
In two other incidents, two minor girls were allegedly raped by their neighbours in the Capital. An eight-year-old girl was raped by a 58-year-old unemployed man, who lured her to his house in central Delhi’s Turkman Gate area on Saturday evening. The girl informed her parents about the incident. The parents took her to a hospital, where the rape was confirmed during the medical examination. Police said they arrested Zulfikar, the accused, from his home.
In yet another case, a 24-year-old man allegedly raped a 14-year-old girl when she was alone at her home in east Delhi’s Madhu Vihar area on Saturday morning. The girl told police that the man, identified as Roshan Ali, had threatened her of dire consequences if she disclosed about the incident to anyone.
