Police have arrested a man and are looking for his friend for allegedly drugging and raping a 15-year-old girl repeatedly over more than four months. The accused, who is at large, is the girl’s uncle. The girl and her mother were living at her uncle’s place in the city’s eastern suburbs, while her father lives in their native village.

As per police sources, when the girl’s mother was away at work, the 37-year-old uncle would ask her to give him money for buying alcohol, which the girl refused. Angry about this, he took the girl to his 21-year-old friend’s place in the vicinity and gave her a drink laced with sedatives. Later, he also forced her to drink alcohol, and when she was not in her senses, he allegedly forced himself upon her, said a police officer, adding that his friend, too, raped the girl.

The accused also threatened to kill her and her mother with a knife if she told her about the incident.

Since May, the two had been raping her every 5-7 days and even assaulted her when she resisted, the girl told the police.
