A 10-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her father in Panigaon Amtola area of Assam’s North Lakhimpur district, a senior police official said on Monday.

The accused, a blind man, who earned his livelihood by singing on the streets, was caught by locals while allegedly committing the crime at his house on April 21, District Superintendent of Police Sudhakar Singh said.

The accused, however, managed to escape, and a search operation is underway to nab him, he said.

An FIR has been lodged at Panigaon police station against the accused by ‘Nari Surakshya Samittee’, a women rights activist group based out of Lakhimpur.

The girl, in her statement to the police, said that her mother deserted them a few months ago, and since then, she used to be raped, the SP said.

The girl was rescued along with her younger brother by the group, which has also handed over a video of the alleged act to the police.
