The girl has suffered several fractures and internal injuries, said her father while lodging a complaint with police in Pilibhit’s Jahanabad area.
Harish Vardhan Singh, SHO, said the accused, identified as Arvind and Mahendra, were booked under IPC section 354 (applying force to a woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 504 (intentional insult) and 323 (causing hurt), besides provisions of the SC/ST Act and the POCSO Act.
In his complaint, the minor’s father alleged that he found his daughter missing from her room. On searching, he discovered the mobile phone of the key accused, a 21-year-old youth who resides in the neighbourhood.
He went to the youth’s house to enquire about the whereabouts of his daughter. He claimed he was just in time to prevent them from sexually assaulting his daughter.
