Press Trust of India  |  Chandigarh 

The State Commission has directed the police to probe the alleged rape of a Dalit girl in a private college of Amritsar.

Rajesh Bagha, chairman of the commission, said the victim who had gone to the college to seek admission on July 6 was allegedly raped by a youth, who offered her a glass of juice while she was filling a form, an official release said here.

The youth committed the ghastly act after the girl became unconscious. The police did not initiate any action as the youth belonged to a well-off family, it said.

Bagha said he took notice of the incident from media reports.

The official said that the commission has instructed the Police Commissioner, Amritsar to submit the complete report in this regard within a week.
