Minor rape victim told to wed rapist’s 8-year-old son

A caste council in Rajasthan has ordered the parents of a six-year-old rape victim to get her married to the eight-year-old son of the man accused of the rape, police said on Thursday.

The incident occurred at Keshavpura in Kota, 250 km from Jaipur.

The 40-year-old man, identified as Kailash, raped the girl who lives in his neighbourhood about a fortnight ago, police said.

‘Kailash locked her in a room and raped her. Instead of registering a police complaint, elders belonging to the girl’s caste called a panchayat (village council) meeting,’ a police official said.

The panchayat ordered the girl’s parents to get her married to Kailash’s minor son.
