Found unconscious at a deserted place in Greater Noida n 2 accused arrested.
Greater Noida: In another gruesome rape of a minor girl, a Class 11 student was allegedly raped by a classmate, a distant relative and another youth who had offered her a lift home for hours inside a moving car last week in Greater Noida. The police has arrested two of the three accused. The incident is said to have taken place on April 18.
The 17-year-old girl was later found in an unconscious state on a deserted road in Greater Noida.
The accused allegedly took turns to rape her inside the car and roamed the city for the entire day before dumping her near Knowledge Park area.
The police swung into action after an FIR was lodged by her parents on Monday after she did not return home on April 18.
The 16-year-old girl was later found in an unconscious state on a deserted road in Greater Noida.
The victim told the police that she was on her way back from school when the incident happened. She said that she missed her bus that day. The three accused offered a lift and she agreed.
The victim alleged that she was offered a drink which was spiked. The three men then raped her for hours.
“One of them was a distant relative who had come from Palwal while another was her classmate. Since she knew the boys, she decided to accompany them in the car. But they allegedly held her captive and forced themselves upon her one by one,” the police added.
A case has been registered under Section 376 (D) of the Pocso Act.
This is the latest incident to be reported amid nationwide anger over a spurt in child rapes this year. It started with the gang-rape, torture and murder of an eight-year-old in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua in the first week of January. The girl was kept in a local temple, drugged, starved and raped repeatedly before being killed.
