Patna: Police on Thursday early morning raided the Maner area and arrested Anjay Pandey, a driver who allegedly raped his former employer’s 17-year-old daughter at her home in the Patliputra police station area on Sunday.
Anjay, police sources said, was nabbed from a cattle shed near his village Srinagar under the Maner police station area where he was hiding.
“The Patliputra police along with local Maner police on Thursday early morning at around 3am conducted the raids and arrested him,” said Patna senior superintendent of police (SSP) Manu Maharaaj. “We will take Anjay for police remand and will go for speedy trial in the case.”
The police on Thursday recorded the survivor’s statement under Section 164 of the CrPC. She has already undergone a medical test performed under the supervision of a team of doctors.
“An FIR was lodged under sections 376 (rape), 307 (attempt to murder) and 326 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means) on a written complaint lodged by the survivor’s parent,” said an officer at Patliputra police station.
Police sources said Anjay has a criminal background and was involved in the abduction of a girl from Calcutta a few years back. A case was also lodged against Anjay with the Maner police. The police will probe that case again.
Anjay was working as a driver at the home of the survivor, who is a student of a reputed school. Around 15 days back he was sacked from his job. He was keeping a close watch on the activities of his former employer. As soon as he came to know that the girl’s parents had gone out of town, he entered the house on the pretext of some work and raped the Class XII student.
The girl’s little brother was at home when she was assaulted. After raping the girl, Anjay took her to a nearby hospital for treatment.
However, the doctors at the hospital suspected foul play, and Anjan abandoned the girl and fled.
The girl narrated the incident to her parents when they returned home on Tuesday evening. It was only then that they approached the cops.
