Guwahati: A 35-year-old man was detained in Assam's Cachar district for allegedly rapping a 15-year-old autistic girl who is unable to speak.

According to reports, the incident occurred on Friday while the girl was alone and at home. Her parents work on the Ledia tea estate as typical wage labourers. The convicts all live in the same neighbourhood. When the father and his wife arrived home from work on Friday, they found their kid weeping in pain, according to the father.

Officials said the perpetrator was captured after the girl's father filed a report. After abusing the girl on Friday, the defendant managed to flee. On Saturday morning, he was captured at a residence in the Ledia tea district.

The victim is reportedly unable to speak, and the attacker has acknowledged forcing himself on her when she was alone at home, according to authorities. The patient was sent to the Silchar Medical College and Hospital for rehabilitation.

According to the official, the SMCH records have been collected, and her statement will be documented after she has recovered physically. The perpetrator has been transferred to Silchar Central Jail, as ordered by the court. The investigation and taking of statements by the police will continue.

In Manipur, a similar occurrence occurred lately. A special court sentenced T Guite, 41, to 14 years in solitary confinement (RI) on Thursday for raping a juvenile in the Churachandpur district in October 2016.

A special court in charge of the district's Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses programme penalised the perpetrator Rs 25,000. (POCSO). If the culprit does not appear to be able to pay the fine, the court will sentence him to another three months in an ordinary prison, according to the official. On Tuesday, the defendants were convicted guilty under Section 4 of the 2012 POCSO Act.
