Bangalore: In a gruesome incident, a man in Karnataka’s Chitradurga district and a cleric hailing from Uttar Pradesh allegedly raped a minor and claimed that they were treating her for ghostly possession.

The arrested cleric was part of a local mosque where the girl studied Quranic studies for three years.

According to police, the cleric convinced the girl’s brother that his sister was possessed by evil spirits and that intercourse would cure her. He then goaded the brother into sexually abusing the girl while the cleric filmed the crime. Later, the cleric also raped the girl.

The victim was sexually abused for six to seven months. Once a week she faced sexual abuse from her brother and the clergyman.

Their crime came to light when the girl was admitted to hospital with stomach pain and she narrated her ordeal to her mother.

The victim’s mother has filed a complaint against the suspect at the women’s police station.

Both the cleric and the brother had been arrested and booked under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses (Pocso) Act.
