UDHAMPUR, Apr 16: The alleged accused, a juvenile, who had attempted to rape a four-year-old girl two days back, was apprehended late last night by the Udhampur Police.
He was presented in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate this morning and was sent to Juvenile Home at Jammu till further orders.
The boy, a student of class 9th, had gone into hiding on Saturday after his attempt to rape the minor at her rented house was foiled by neighbours. He had gone to deliver milk to the family and finding the girl alone, tried to rape her. However, the cries of the girl and her six-year old brother, attracted the attention of neighbours who rushed to the spot.
The accused fled the scene and hectic efforts were launched to nab him.
After two days’ hunt, a Police party led by SHO Udhampur, Inspector Sanjeev Gupta, apprehended the accused from a hideout late last night.
