Kolkata: A 25-year-old physically challenged woman was allegedly raped by a 50-year-old man in Behala, on the city's southern outskirts, police said on Thursday.

The accused is yet to be arrested. "We have received a complaint against one Bikash Ghosh accusing him of raping a physically challenged woman. The accused has gone into hiding. But we are confident of arresting him soon," Deputy Commissioner (South West Division) S Mitra said.

According to police, the incident took place Monday evening when Ghosh lured the victim to a secluded place and allegedly raped her. Traumatised by the incident, the girl related the incident to her family members on Wednesday, following which a police complaint was filed.

"We took the victim's clothes for forensic tests. A medical test to confirm rape has already been done, reports of which are awaited," Mitra said.
