Shaagee alleged that the minor visited Achin in Avalumum’s house but Achin forcefully had sexual intercourse with her.

She told the court that during the sexual intercourse, she sustained injury as blood gushed out of her virgina and she was rushed to hospital.

She said the surety must reside within the jurisdiction of the court and adjourned the case until Nov. 10 for mention.
