New Delhi: A 14-year-old girl has accused her live-in partner, also a minor, of "raping her repeatedly" over a course of one year in South East Delhi, police said today.

The complainant alleged that she was living with the accused over the last one year in Jaitpur area here, police said.

The 16-year-old boy deserted her one day and disappeared and she returned to her family who then approached the police with a complaint, a senior police officer said.

The juvenile used to stay across the victim's house in Jaitpur and that's how they came in contact, he said.

They became friends and eventually got into a relationship, police said.  After the accused moved from the place, the victim started living in with him in the vicinity, they said.

 A case under relevant sections of POCSO has been registered and police is investigating the matter. PTI
