A 40-year-old man was arrested on Monday on charges of raping and impregnating a 15-year-old girl, his neighbour, near Periyanaickenpalayam.

Thudiyalur All Women  Police told Express that the girl was living with her father after her mother separated from the family owing to some dispute a couple of years ago.  Some months back, Joseph (40) (name changed), a security guard, who was her neighbour, entered the girl’s house when her father was away and raped her. Subsequently, she became pregnant.

Stuck by fear, the girl did not reveal the incident to her father. However, a family friend, who grew suspicious after noticing the girl puking frequently, told her mother to take the girl to a doctor. After tests it was confirmed she was six months pregnant. When the mother confronted her, girl revealed she was raped by Joseph. Following a complaint, he was arrested on Monday.
