Bihar: 4 Arrested in Minor’s Rape Case


More than a fortnight after the shocking occurrence of rape of a minor Nalanda girl surfaced, the police on Thursday caught four persons — all ladies, suspected to have taken the minor girl to the main accused, RJD leader Raj Ballabh Yadav’s home and named in the FIR. However, the leader still stayed on the loose.

Three women — Sulekha Devi, her mother Radha Devi and daughter Chhoti Devi — were arrested from the house of their distant relative Moti Ram in village Khaddi under Hilsa police station of Nalanda.

After their interrogation, the police also picked up the fourth woman, Tushi Devi, younger sister of Sulekha Devi.

Tushi Devi also lived at her sister’s place located at Professor Colony (Gadhpar) under Bihar police station in Nalanda.

“The women, wanted in the case and evading arrest despite court’s proclamation order served at their residence, are suspected to have played a big role in luring the minor girl to accompany them to the legislator’s house,” said Nalanda SP Kumar Ashish.
