Four persons arrested in Vitla for raping minor girl
Mangaluru: The Dakshina Kannada police have arrested four persons in connection with the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl in Vitla.
In a complaint filed at the Vitla police station on July 29, the girl’s mother said her daughter was sexually assaulted by five persons on different dates.
Registering the complaint under the provision of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, the police arrested Sukumar. Kamalaksha, Akshay, and Jayaprakash. The search is on for the fifth accused person.
Democratic Youth Federation of India State president Muneer Katipalla claimed Sukumar and Jayaprakash were activists of the Bajrang Dal.
“The BJP legislators from the coastal region, who are raising a hue and cry over the alleged voyeurism incident in Udupi, should have the same concern to condemn the sad act in Vitla. I will arrange the stage before the office of the Superintendent of Police for the protest in which the BJP MLAs can take part,” he said.
Meanwhile, Vishwa Hindu Parishad district president Gopal Kuthar said Sukumar and Jayaprakash were not associated with the Bajrang Dal.
