A 17-year-old boy, who allegedly attempted to rape a nine-year-old girl in Wokha May 23, was arrested by police, it has been reported.
According to Kyong Eloe Hoho (KEH), the incident occurred May 23 when the girl, who had gone to fetch water with some boys in the field, was lured by the accused boy to a secluded spot and told other accompanying boys not to follow while he took the girl away to a corner.
However, one of the boys went to peek and saw the accused boy removing girl’s clothes and attempting to molest her, said the KEH president Thungjano Tsanglao.
The girl had accompanied her parents who were working further up in the field.
The boy then ran up to girl’s parents to report what he saw, whereupon the father came shouting to rescue his daughter.
The accused boy who fled was later caught by women of Molonsu colony at around 2:30 p.m. and later handed over to the women of GHS colony where the victim resided.
Upon registering FIR with the police by girl’s father, the police arrested the accused boy who had already been manhandled by the mob.
Meanwhile, the KEH has strongly condemned atrocities committed towards women and girls.
“Such reports are rampant in different parts of Nagaland but no stringent actions are taken,” said the KEH president, adding the hoho firmly believed that it was every citizen’s responsibility to check such menaces and perpetrators be awarded stern punishment according to law.
