In an inhumane incident, a 14-year-old girl being raped by a 53-year-old man has been reported from Ghousianagar in City today. The accused has been identified as Mehboob Pasha (53), a provision store owner, residing in Ghousianagar.

The Police said that the incident took place around four months back at his residence when none of his family members were present.

The minor girl, who stayed in the neighbouring house, was a regular visitor to the shop to buy groceries. On the day of the incident, when the girl came to buy groceries, Mehboob took the girl to his house when none of his family members were present and allegedly raped the girl.

The incident came to light when the girl’s mother noted that 14-year-old had missed her menstrual cycle. The girl was taken to a doctor for an examination where it was confirmed that the girl was pregnant.

Later, on enquiry the girl revealed about the incident. The girl’s parents took her to Udayagiri Police Station and registered a complaint. Soon, a Police team headed by Inspector R.P. Ashok rushed to the spot and arrested Mehboob Pasha.

At the time when we went to press, the Police had taken Mehboob Pasha to KR Hospital for medical examination. The girl will also be subjected to medical examination.

Further details about the incident will emerge only after a thorough investigation. Mehboob is expected to be produced before the jurisdictional court this evening.
