A 14-year-old Class VIII student was raped allegedly by her neighbour at her house in Khajuri Khas here on Friday night.

According to police, the houses of the victim and the accused are adjacent and the accused jumped through the common wall between the terraces of both the houses and entered the girl’s room where she was sleeping.

“Other members of the family were also present but the accused managed to enter the girl’s room and raped her. He covered her mouth to prevent her cries of help from being heard outside the room. He further threatened her of dire consequences if she told anyone and fled,” said a police officer.

The victim, however, narrated her ordeal to her mother who lodged a complaint at the Khajuri Khas police station based on the complaint and the victim’s medical report a case of rape was registered and the accused was arrested later, said the police.
