Srinagar:  Police arrested a 57-year-old man from Shopian for allegedly raping a deaf and dumb girl over the course of several months on Wednesday.

The case was registered after the girl’s family approached police, accusing the 57-year-old man identified as Abdul Gani Tantray, 57, a resident of Poterwal village, of raping the deaf and dump and leaving her pregnant.

The family had approached Police Station Keegan with a written complaint in this regard following which police registered a case — FIR No. 48 — under relevant sections of IPC besides 3/4 POCSO Act.

The police later arrested the accused and started further investigations into the matter. A police officer confirmed the arrest but refused to share details related to the case, saying “investigations were underway.” (GNS)
