Chandigarh: In a shocking incident, a 14-year-old girl was allegedly raped by four persons over a fortnight after she was abducted by a fellow villager in Haryana’s Jind district, police said today.
Police have arrested four persons, including a woman, in connection with the rape.
The girl’s misery started when she was first abducted allegedly by a man hailing from her Gangoli village on December 5, Jind Superintendent of Police Ram Singh told.
The man, Moti, took her to Budakhera village under Safidon police station and allegedly raped her near the railway station there. Later, two youths who have now been arrested apart from Moti, also allegedly raped her and dumped her near a brick kiln in Jind, the SP said.
Founding her lying in a state of unconsciousness, next morning a youth, who identified himself to the girl as Vikas, took her to the house of a woman named Sona Devi at Panipat by offering to help her.
Vikas also allegedly raped her repeatedly before police raided Sona Devi’s house yesterday and rescued the girl, Ram Singh said.
"We arrested Sona Devi, a widow, for knowing about the crime and for shielding Vikas, who is absconding," he said.
Singh said that they were raiding different places to arrest the absconding accused. A case of rape and kidnapping had been registered under relevant sections of the IPC against the accused.(PTI)
