A 16-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by an auto-rickshaw driver in Chilkalguda. The man threatened to throw acid on her face and kill her if she refused to cooperate with him.

The accused has been identified as Narsingh, a resident of Hamal basti, which is in the vicinity of the girl’s residence. “He has been married for the past 13 years.Narsingh had called the girl to his house in the past as well, but he never made a move on her,” police officials said.

“On Monday, he called her to his place around noon, locked the doors from inside and forced himself on her. When she resisted, he threatened her saying that he would pour acid on her face and murder her,” said the girl’s mother.

Terrified by the threats, the girl decided not to tell her parents about the incident. However, a local resident, who had seen her running back home from his place, informed them. When her parents questioned her, the girl told them what had happened.

“He should be strictly punished. Police teams should make sure that such an incident does not occur again in our community,” said a resident of the area.The girl filed a complaint against the auto-rickshaw driver, claiming that she had been sexually assaulted and raped by him, on Friday. 

R. Bhaskar, inspector of Chilkalguda, said, “Based on the complaint, we have booked a case under relevant sections of the IPC and the Pocso Act. We will soon arrest the accused, and he will be sent to judicial remand.” The inspector added that Narsingh was absconding.
