SHILLONG: Police on Saturday last arrested a 12-year-old boy for allegedly raping four minor girls of the same family in the past one year at 4th Mile, Upper Shillong.

Additional Superintendent of Police (Crime), Vivek Syiem, informed that the matter came to light only after a complaint was lodged recently by the aunt of the girls. These girls aged between 5 to 9 years underwent medical examination which confirmed that they had been raped.

“This boy has been repeatedly doing this for the past one year until recently when the matter was brought to the notice of the girls’ aunt,” Syiem said, adding that the boy was a neighbour of the girls and used to play together in the same compound.

The accused was forwarded to the Juvenile Court.
