Jammu, September 17: Bail application of two accused brothers arrested for kidnapping and raping a girl has been rejected by Principal Sessions Judge of Samba.
As per police, two brothers named Mangal and Vijay Kumar raped a girl on April 15 this year while she was returning home from her field early in the morning. The girl in her statement said that the duo who was known to the girl offered her a lift in their tractor while she was on her way back home. They assured that they will drop her home but as she sat on tractor, Mangal put his handkerchief containing some intoxicant upon her mouth. The girl got unconscious and when she woke up, it was dark and she was alone. Both the accused were on the run after raping the girl.
Police on hearing the girl, registered a case under section 366/376 of RPC and arrested both the accused. Principal Sessions Judge of Samba, M L Manhas rejected the bail plea of the accused duo at the sessions court by saying that leniency in such matters would really be a case of misplaced sympathy.
