In another incident of crime against women in Haryana, a 17-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a 38-year-old man in Panipat late on Friday evening. The accused and his accomplice, who played a role in allegedly hatching the conspiracy, were arrested by the police on Saturday.
The incident came to light on Saturday morning, when the victim's mother lodged a complaint with the Panipat police.
The accused raped the girl in an inebriated condition and threatened her with dire consequences if she told anyone about the incident, said police.
The victim lives with her parents in a rented house in Panipat. Their landlord, Jagtar Singh, and his friend Gurnam Singh, consumed alcohol on Friday evening.
