Tura, Dec 22:
An FIR has been filed against a rape accused for marrying the 17 year old victim and then abandoning the girl after 4 months in the plain belt of Garo Hills. The family of the victim approached the cops, seeking arrest of the accused — Dildar Ataullah Reza.
Reza had allegedly raped the victim in her house about 5 months ago when her mother had gone to her relatives. He then coaxed the girl into a marriage, with the marriage being solemnized through a Court affidavit in the month of August, 2019. It was only after the man left the victim when the family moved the police on the matter. The FIR in the case was filed on Dec 11.
The family further alleged that the accused was politically well connected due to which even the village elders were unable to act against him.
