Teen molested, father says rape attempt at knifepoint

2 men forcibly gained entry to their house, one arrested

A 16-year-old girl was allegedly molested in outer Delhi’s Narela on Tuesday. Her father claimed that two men forcibly gained entry into the house and tried to rape her at knifepoint.

Police filed a case of molestation and arrested one of the accused.

The girl’s father told Deccan Herald that the incident occurred when she was going to a washroom on the balcony of the house.

He identified the accused as Rizwan and his brother-in-law Aadab, and claimed that Aadab’s father is a local goon named Yakoob.

Rizwan and Aadab were allegedly standing outside the house when they saw the girl around 3.45 am.

“They entered into the house and threatened my daughter at knifepoint. She was taken to a room where the two men tried to rape her,” the girl’s father said.

Her family members, however, rushed to help on hearing her cry for help.
Hearing the commotion, their neighbours also gathered outside the house.

Rizwan and Aadab tried to flee, but locals managed to overpower Aadab.
“Rizwan fled by jumping over the fence,” the girl’s father added.

Aadab was also thrashed by locals before being handed over to police.
A PCR call was made and a local police team came and arrested Aadab and took the girl to the police station.

‘Goon bribed police’
The girl’s statement was recorded, but her family alleged that no case of rape was registered as local policemen took bribe from Aadab’s father.

A case of molestation under Indian Penal Code and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act has been filed.

The girl’s statement was recorded in Rohini Court on Wednesday. Aadab was also produced before the court and sent to judical custody.

The girl is a class 10 student of a local government school and lives with her parents and two brothers in Narela Pocket 6.
