Minor girl raped in North Guwahati


A 16-year-old girl, who fled from her home at Borhat tea estate in Tinsukia district, was raped inside a house in North Guwahati for three days. The girl, a student of Class IX, met the alleged rapist at the Gauhati Railway Station after she deboarded from a train on Thursday.

The victim had left her home without informing her family members.

Deba Das, the alleged rapist, forcibly took her to a house in North Guwahati where he sexually assaulted her for three days.
