Class V boys rape child after watching video

 Two teenagers, both aged 13 and students of Class V, were apprehended by the Kishanganj police after they were charged with gang-raping a minor girl.

The 5-year-old victim is said to be their neighbour in Kishanganj, around 425 km from the state capital.

Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO), Kamini Bala, said the girl was sent for a medical examination after an FIR was lodged by the victim’s mother.

Both the accused, who have confessed to their crime, were produced before the local juvenile court on Saturday, which, in turn, ordered they be kept at a remand home.

Since Kishanganj does not have a remand home, the two boys were sent to a remand home in Purnia.

Kishanganj Superintendent of Police (SP), Rajiv Mishra, said the two boys lured the girl on the pretext of giving her chocolates, took her to an abandoned lavatory and raped her. When the parents of the girl did not find her in the house, they went in search of her.

Eventually, the minor girl was found lying in a pool of blood in the lavatory.
“Prima facie, the charges against the two boys appear to be true,” said the SP, who has asked the Station House Officer (SHO) of the women’s police station, Mahashweta, to submit a charge sheet against the accused in the next 48 hours.

The SHO said the accused told the interrogators that they committed the crime after watching an obscene video clip on mobile phone.

The police have also arrested the parents of the two accused as they had beaten up the girl’s parents for lodging a case against the boys.
