 Ten persons, including two minors, allegedly took turns to rape a 13-year-old mentally-challenged girl over a period of two months in Meghalaya’s North Garo Hills district, police said Sunday.

The incident came to light after an FIR was lodged by the girl’s family at the Resubelpara police station yesterday. Police arrested nine of the accused today, while one is absconding.

The mentally-challenged girl was repeatedly raped over the last two months, the police said, adding that the wife of one of the accused had witnessed the dastardly act and informed the village elders about it. 

The village heads called the family members of the girl to a meeting on July 25 to arrive at a compromise. However, the girl’s family did not relent and lodged the FIR, the police said. They added that two of the accused were minors, while most of the others were married and hailed from the same village of Haluapara under Resubelpara police station. “The accused confessed to their crime at the meeting held in the village,” Circle Inspector of Resubelpara police station G K Sangma said.
