VARANASI: A Dalit girl was allegedly raped by her martial art trainer on the campus of Banaras Locomotive works on Monday evening in Uttar Pradesh’s Varanasi.
The accused was arrested after the girl lodged an FIR against him at Manduadih police station on Tuesday. The trainer has been booked under section 376 of IPC and SC/ST Act.
According to reports, the girl, a native of Sonbhadra district, lives with her friends in Manduadih area in Varanasi. For self-defence, she has been taking training in martial arts from Vinod Vishwakarma, a resident of Kandwa area, for the last one month.
According to the girl, Vinod was teaching martial arts to her and two other students near Surya Sarovar on BLW Campus at 6:30pm on Monday. Meanwhile, it started raining, and the trainer told the other students to go home, and he will drop the girl at home. Around 7:30pm, Vinod took her behind a bush near the pond and allegedly raped her. She was so scared after the rape that she could not understand what to do. Somehow, she gathered courage and contacted a lawyer, and then went to Manduadih police station to lodge the FIR.
The Manduadih SHO Rajeev Singh told TOI that the accused was arrested, and the girl was sent for the medical examination.
