City SHO Saifullah Korai said that the boy, a resident of Taheemabad near Khanpur, had been raped by a prayer leader on Monday. “He assaulted the boy when he went to the mosque to study. He had then fled,” he said. The boy was taken to a hospital, where his condition was stated to be out of danger, police said.
