I’m praying to God that she recovers quickly,” he stated. Mother of the girl, who was hurt in the incident, said: “The accused, who lives around 2.5 kilometres from our town of Dhebo, should receive harsh punishment. For the previous two to three months, he had been bothering my daughter.”
The accused has been arrested and legal procedures are on, Chatra Deputy Commissioner Abu Imran said.
