After 4 yrs, police informer reaches Nepal to bring back rape accused
New Delhi: A 49-year-old Nepal national was arrested after four years for raping a minor girl in Okhla area. Police, with the help of a secret informer, brought back rape accused to India on the pretext of tailor job and arrested him from Delhi Gate.
Police identified the accused as Vijay Kumar Damai. The accused was declared Proclaimed Offender (PO).
According to police, a woman complainant reported on August 10, 2015 when she went to the school to bring her daughter back to the home, she came to know that one person aged about 50 years, posed himself as the grandfather of the child, had already taken away her daughter at about 1 pm. The woman recalled that person as Vijay living in the same building as a tenant and her daughter usually called him 'Dada'.
She and her husband searched her daughter everywhere in the locality and adjoining areas but not found. In the evening, her daughter was found in a pool of blood in the jungle near Sanjay Colony.
On the basis of MLC result, a case of rape and attempt to murder was registered at Okhla police station. The suspect Sanjay was found absconding. After this incident, several teams were formed and all out efforts were made to nab accused Sanjay. During investigation, it was revealed that Sanjay fled to Nepal and it became difficult for the police team to bring him back to India.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (central) Mandeep Singh Randhawa said that recently they received information related to the whereabouts of the accused in Nepal. A secret informer was sent to Nepal who developed good intimacy with the accused Vijay.
Soon, the informer convinced the accused that the case of rape registered against him has been closed and now he can arrange a good job for him in Delhi since there is a shortage of good tailors in Delhi.
"Earlier, accused Vijay did not show any interest to come back to India but after regular pursuance of the secret informer, accused Vijay finally planned to shift Delhi," DCP Central said adding that on September 28 he was arrested from Delhi Gate.
Police said that the accused was living in the same building and on two to three occasions, the victim's father abused him. He planned to teach him a lesson. "Vijay took the girl from the school and went in the jungle near Sanjay Colony where he raped her and tried to kill her," police said.
"In the last four years, he worked as a tailor in Kathmandu, Bhutwal and other places in Nepal and occasionally visits his house in Nepal and therefore, he could not be tracked by the police team," police said.
