The CP stated, “When the mother returned from the farm, she noticed that the victim was bleeding. Upon the receipt of the complaint, the police swung into action and arrested the suspect, who confessed to the crime during the course of investigation.
“The victim was taken to hospital for medical examination and treatment, where she is still receiving treatment and the medical examination revealed that there was extensive laceration into the rectum. The suspect will be charged after the completion of investigation.”
