An FIR was registered by police on September 21 on the complaint of the girl’s father, a resident of a village in Hathras district, that he suspected the girl was raped in captivity. Police then arrested the 15-year-old relative who confessed to his crime, the SSP said.
“The boy’s mother, who is the maternal aunt of the victim, is reported to be an accomplice in the crime and is absconding,” he added.
