A hearing-and-speech-impaired girl was allegedly raped by a youth in Baruipur’s Sahapara last week. The girl’s father lodged a complaint on Sunday leading to the arrest of the accused Budhadeb Koyal. Koyal was produced in the court on Sunday. According to police, the 16-year-old girl was allegedly raped when her parents were away.
She was with her younger sister, when Koyal allegedly entered the house and committed the crime. Though the girl didn’t narrate this immediately, her parents grew suspicious after noticing changes in her behaviour. Koyal was staying as a tenant in a neighbouring house. The girl has been sent for a medical check-up.
