Kolkata: A 15-year-old school girl was allegedly raped twice in West Bengal's Cooch Behar district, police said on Monday.
The incident came to light Monday after the victim's family filed a police complaint.
According to the complaint, the class 7 student, allegedly was taken to Alipurduar by a neighbour on the pretext that her father was admitted to a hospital there, where she was raped Jan 27. She was raped again two days later.
"We have registered a complaint and a medical examination to ascertain rape has been conducted. No arrest has been made so far," said a police officer.
Police allegedly refused to register the complaint but later relented after the State Women Commission intervened.
"The victim's family alleged that police had refused to register a complaint but now a first information report has been registered and police have been ordered to take immediate action," the commission's chairperson Sunanda Mukherjee said.
The incident comes days after another minor girl was gang-raped twice in South 24 Parganas district.
