The Indore court sentenced a girl to ten years in prison for the first time after finding her guilty of raping a minor boy. The accused girl had fraudulently taken the teenager to Gujarat and had forcible physical relations with him several times there.

According to the information, on November 5, 2018, a woman filed a complaint at Indore’s Banganga police station that her 15-year-old son had gone to a nearby shop to buy milk for kheer on November 3, 2018, but had not returned after a long time.

Following this, the woman pleaded with police to find her son, fearing that he had been abducted. Following this, the police began searching for the missing adolescent. After a few days, the police apprehended the teenager, and a young woman was also apprehended with him.

The girl used to carry the boy’s phone.

The victim adolescent claimed that the girl repeatedly forced him to engage in physical relations.
