An Assam Rifles constable in central Assam's Kabri Anglong district was on Wednesday accused of raping a 12-year-old girl.
In a statement before the Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court in Diphu, the girl said she went shopping with a neighbour, Kache Rongpipi, to a weekend fair at Taralangso village in Diphu.
The girl said a local woman asked them to spend the night at her place, as it was too late for them to return. The constable Gautam Tamang was also asked to stay over at the local woman's place.
On Tuesday morning, the girl complained that Tamang had raped her. The local police sought custody of Tamang from the judicial court and subsequently took him in custody on Wednesday.
