A case of rape was registered against a 26-year-old Border Security Force (BSF) jawan on Friday, after a man lodged a complaint that the jawan had sexually assaulted his mentally unsound daughter and impregnated her.

The incident took place at Kulakcharla police limits in Ranga Reddy district. The accused is absconding.

The 22-year-old woman was shifted to a government hospital for medical examination, based on which action will be initiated against the accused.

According to police, the victim, who is a resident of Hyderabad, used to visit her grandmother’s house in Kulakcharla frequently. Naresh, the jawan, is the grandmother’s neighbour.

Deputy superintendent of police, Chevella, K Silpa Valli told Express,

“The woman has been staying at her grandmother’s place since the last 15 months. During this time, Naresh absued her.”

When the girl fell ill, her family members admitted her to a private hospital. The doctors who examined her declared her pregnant.

The victim’s father, Kishan Singh, rushed to Kulkachrala, after which the girl told him that Naresh was abusing her sexually. She also said that he had threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the act.

Singh and the victim approached the Kulkacharla police and lodged a complaint.

A police team visited Naresh’s house to question him and his family in connection with the case. However, cops found the house locked, with no sign of their inmates.

The locals, however, told them that Naresh had recently left the place after receiving a call from BSF officials to resume his duties.

Meanwhile, a team was formed a team to nab Naresh’s family members. Police have also contacted higher officials at the BSF to collect details about Naresh.
