The Punjab State Scheduled Castes Commission has directed the police to probe the alleged rape of a Dalit girl in a private college of Amritsar.

Rajesh Bagha, chairman of the commission, said the victim who had gone to the college to seek admission on July 6 was allegedly raped by a youth, who offered her a glass of juice while she was filling a form, an official release said here.

The youth committed the ghastly act after the girl became unconscious. The police did not initiate any action as the youth belonged to a well-off family, it said.

Bagha said he took notice of the incident from media reports.
