A mother-son duo was arrested from South Kolkata on Saturday in connection with the alleged rape of a girl a couple of months ago, police said.
Acting on a complaint lodged by the survivor, police arrested the woman and her son and charged them under POCSO Act, an officer said.
As per the FIR, the girl, who was doing a beautician course with the woman, was invited to their residence in October and allegedly fed drug-laced food.
After the girl lost consciousness, the accused son allegedly raped her a couple of times, the officer said.
“The survivor was initially scared of approaching the police for justice. But later, with encouragement from her friends, she lodged the FIR. The mother-son duo was arrested and further investigation is underway,” he added.
