Absconding paedophile arrested

Posted by Ramesh Khati on October 6, 2009

GANGTOK, October 5 (Agencies): Chewang Sherpa who has been absconding after allegedly raping two girls at Sombaria was arrested by West Sikkim police today. Mr. Sherpa (30) has been accused of raping the two minor girls on the night of October 1 at Hattaran busty, Sombaria. The victims had gone to a relative’s house at Hattaran busty on the occasion of Dasain where the accused had allegedly raped them taking advantage of the darkness. The heinousness of the crime can be judged from the fact that one victim is 12 years old and the other is 13 years old. The accused promptly took to his heels after committing the ghastly crime. An FIR was lodged at Sombaria police station leading to a manhunt for the accused. The victims have been handed over to their parents after medical examination at Namchi hospital, it is informed. A case under section 376/457 of IPC has been registered against the accused who will be produced before the court tomorrow for remand.
