Sketch of rape accused released
Jaipur: More than a year after an 11-year-old Dalit girl was raped in Sawai Madhopur, the Crime Against Women cell has released a sketch of the accused.
According to officials, the sketch was made a few months after the rape but it was not released in public. The case was recently handed over to the circle officer of the crime cell and after talking to the survivor, the sketch has been circulated. The minor was raped allegedly by an unidentified accused last year on April 19.
On the fateful day, the girl along with her younger sibling went to the market when the accused, who was on a bike and his face semi-covered, stopped next to them and asked the girls to go with him for picking up flour from a mill.
“The accused asked the minor girls to help pick up flour and when they agreed, he took them both to the nearby fields where he allegedly tied the younger child and raped the elder one. The girl’s parents registered a case and an investigation was initiated but unfortunately it did not move forward,” said Om Prakash Solanki, circle officer, women cell, who is spearheading the investigation. The case was registered at Bowli police station and cops also had a preliminary sketch of the accused by December last year but it was not released to the public. Solanki added, “It is difficult to comment on the reason as to why the investigating officer did not release the sketch of the accused but I spoke to the girl again and now the final sketch has been circulated to media, informants and locals to find the accused and get justice for the child.” tnn
