Delhi: Tantrik rapes 14-year-old girl several times, impregnates her, FIR registered
A horrific incident has come to light from Delhi where a Tantrik (occultist) has been accused of raping a 14-year-old girl on several occasions and impregnating her. The victim’s mother has filed a complaint against the Tantrik.
The victim’s mother, according to reports, took her to a tantrik for exorcism. Under the guise of exorcism, the Tantrik repeatedly raped her. The matter came to light after the girl was found to be two months pregnant.
On the basis of the victim’s mother’s complaint, Baba Haridas Nagar police have registered an FIR against a Tantrik under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012.
Senior officials reported that the victim’s condition was deteriorating, at which point the girl’s mother took her to a tantrik for exorcism. The accused then sent them home after blowing the broom on the girl. The victim’s mother claimed that the tantrik came to the girl’s house after a few days, sent the girl’s mother outside the room, and then sexually assaulted her.
Scared of this, the girl did not tell anyone about the incident. However, her family learned about this when she was found to be 2 months pregnant.
The police said the accused has been booked under relevant sections. Further action will be taken against the accused in this matter after a proper investigation, said an official.
Last year, a similar incident took place in Goa where a 50-year-old man, posing as tantrik, allegedly raped a 14-year-old girl. A police official disclosed that the accused called the victim to his residence on Monday and raped her on the pretext of getting all her wishes fulfilled.
Police arrested the Tantrik and the victim’s mother for conniving with the accused on the basis of the complaint filed by the victim’s father.
