The incident took place on Wednesday night, said SP Sathya Prakash. He said the accused, who is a distant relative and a neighbour of the victim, allegedly raped the woman around midnight and tried to muffle her screams by forcing a piece of cloth into her mouth.

However, the family heard her screams and woke up from their sleep and captured the boy. They thrashed the accused with him suffering serious injuries and handed him over to the police.

An FIR was lodged based on the complaint by the woman's daughter in law. "The complainant has claimed that the accused is an adult and his certificates which showed him a minor were fake. This would be ascertained through medical examination," the SP added.
