Minor raped in Sonapur: 2 held

Escalating protests seem to have failed to help the state stop rape and molestation cases. Yet another rape incident rocked the state on Friday. The victim is a minor girl in Sonapur area in the outskirt of Guwahati.

The duo forcibly took the girl on Friday evening to be raped inside the vehicle and dumped at the roadside in the morning.
Police arrested the culprits hours after the victim’s family members moved police with a complaint. Many local organizations demand exemplary punishment for the culprits.
