Mumbai Bizarre Crime: Minor girl in Kurla jumps out of window and fractures leg, boyfriend arrested for 'rape'

Mumbai: A teen girl who was with her boyfriend jumped off from her first floor flat in Kurla in Mumbai after her mother walked in on them, police said on Sunday.

The incident took place on Friday afternoon in the suburb's Bail Bazar area, an official said. "The 17-year-old girl was with her boyfriend in her bedroom. When she realised her mother had come home, she asked the boyfriend to flee and then jumped out of the window, fracturing her left leg on landing," he said.

She later confessed to her family that her boyfriend, identified as Sunil Zhende (20), was in her bedroom and so she panicked. "After we got a complaint from the girl's family, we arrested Zhende for rape and house trespass under IPC and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act," the VB Nagar police station official said.
