Alleging that her maternal uncle raped her, a 19-year-old girl from Kaithal consumed “poison” outside the residence of the Jind Superintendent of Police on Monday morning. She was rushed to a hospital where her condition was stated to be stable. The accused was later arrested.
The girl’s mother and grandmother, however, said that the allegations were false.
“The girl was residing at her maternal grandparents house for the past few years. She has alleged that her maternal uncle raped her over a period of time after drugging her. Last night she stayed at the house of the village sarpanch. He told her to meet some senior officials. However, instead of approaching anyone she consumed poison,” said SP Jind Shashank Anand.
Anand said that she was rushed to the civil hospital from where she was referred to PGIMS Rohtak.
