15-year-old held for 'raping' girl
A 15-year-old boy was Wednesday arrested on the charge of raping a minor girl, police said.
The boy, who has been sent to a juvenile remand home, was taken into custody after the 14-year-old girl's parents lodged a complaint, they said.
According to police, the boy and girl were neighbours in Thagarapuvalasa area of the district and were in a relationship.
Some days ago, the girl asked the boy to give a commitment of marriage, but the latter refused.
The girl told her parents about the affair following which they approached the police, who registered a rape case against the boy.
