Jabalpur: A 14-year-old girl was gang-raped repeatedly by five people for more than two months in the Gorakhpur area in Madhya Pradeshâs Jabalpur, a senior police official said on Saturday.
The girlâs parents approached the police last night alleging that five people, aged between 18 and 21, gang-raped their daughter, Gorakhpur Superintendent of Police Arjun Uike said.
âThe parents approached the police after the news spread that the girl underwent an abortion two days ago,â the official said.
Three accused, identified as Saurabh Chakravarty, Pramod Chakravarty and Honey Chakravarty, have been arrested, he said.
âTwo others, Rahul Chakravarty and Bantu Sonker, are on the run,â Uike said.
The SP said two of the accused would allegedly ask the minor to cook food at their residence for a nominal sum.
âThe five would take her home and gangrape her repeatedly,â the official alleged.
The SP said the family lives in a slum, and the girlâs parents and her brother work as daily wagers.
The police were also trying to locate the doctor who carried out the abortion.
Terminating pregnancy of a rape victim without the courtâs sanction is illegal.
âWe are going to arrest the doctor,â the official said.
He said that a case had been registered against the accused under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.
