Jalandhar: A 17-year-old boy was allegedly kidnapped and sodomised by four persons repeatedly throughout Sunday night.
The boy was later thrown — in an unconscious state — near the leather complex by the miscreants early Monday morning.
The case came to light after the boy, under treatment at the civil hospital here, regained consciousness and informed his family about the incident.
While the police are waiting for the medical report to ascertain the sodomy charges, preliminary investigation by the doctors has confirmed sexual assault.
The police arrested main accused Gopi and one of his accomplices today.
In his statement to the police, victim Rohit Kumar said that he had gone out to buy groceries when Gopi and three others approached him and forcibly pushed him into a car. He was given some injection after which he lost consciousness. Gopi assaulted him sexually and later threw him near the leather complex.
He said the accused has threatened to kill him and his sister if he reveals the incident to anyone.
According to the victim’s family, Rohit had got an FIR registered against Gopi for harassing his sister. She was so perturbed at the harassment that she tried to commit suicide on September 12. Since then, she is bedridden. According to ADCP Amrik Singh Powar, preliminary investigation revealed that three out of the four accused are minors. Gopi had been arrested earlier for eve teasing and was out on bail.
