Noida, March 8: In a horrifying incident, an 18 year old boy raped his 16-year old girlfriend and set her ablaze. The girl has been admitted to Delhi's Safdarjung hospital with 60% burns. The accused Ajay Sharma lives in the same village and was arrested at his house.
The girl's father is a tailor who runs a shop in the locality said that their family had complained about the boy a few days ago for peeping into the house. "But his family promised that he will not disturb us again, so we did not follow the complaint," the girl's father said.
The father of the girl said,"At about 2.30am (on Monday), Ajay came to meet my daughter. The duo was having an affair. They met on the roof, where he raped her and set her ablaze. He fled from the spot."
Since the duo belonged to different religions, police were deployed at the village fearing tension.
However, the police said that there were no untoward incident in the village and that the two religious groups were called for a peace meeting.
