A 24-year-old woman who is working in the housekeeping department of a 5-star hotel, was allegedly raped by a 15-year-old boy who was visiting there with his family.
The woman lives with her husband. She was raped inside the washroom and later offered money by the accused’s parents to bury the matter. However, she was adamant about reporting the incident to the police. It is known from the complaint that the woman was inside the washroom charging her phone, when the boy came in, locked the door, raped her, and left. It is said that the incident happened around 9.30 AM on Friday.
The accused comes from a well-to-do family from Chattisgarh. The boy has been arrested after filing an FIR under the IPC.
Sub-inspector Shashi Purohit said that after receiving the information, they went to the hotel and arrested the boy. Also, a medical examination has proved that the woman was indeed raped. The woman later revealed that when she informed the accused’s family about what had happened, they offered her money and treatment instead of sympathizing with her. She declined to say she would rather go to the police as she did not need their money.
An investigation officer has shared that the boy had confessed to his crime. The boy apparently kept crying during questioning and said that he regrets the big mistake he has made.
