Banda (UP): A 16-year-old Dalit young lady was purportedly assaulted at gunpoint in Uttar Pradesh's Banda locale, authorities said on Wednesday, with her family charging that police at first wouldn't record a case even after the blamed was given over.

The girl was allegedly raped by one Baua Singh, who threatened her with a country-made pistol, at her house in Bisanda area of the district on September 3, Circle Officer Kuldeep Singh said.

Her family alleged that they caught the accused on the spot and handed him over to the police but officials let him off and tried to hush up the matter. They then approached superintendent of police after which a case was registered.

"The FIR for the situation was enrolled on Tuesday on orders of the superintendent of police," the circle official said. 

The blamed is at present on the run and police said they are attempting to catch him.
