Stu­dent ab­ducted, raped:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

A col­lege stu­dent was ab­ducted and raped by three men in In­dia’s north­ern Haryana state while on her way home from a tu­ition class, the lat­est sex­ual attack to shock the coun­try.

The 19-year-old girl was wait­ing at a bus stop when she was al­legedly kid­napped, drugged and raped, po­lice said Fri­day.

“She knows the three ac­cused as they are from the same vil­lage (as the girl). They are on the run at the mo­ment,” said Anirudh Kumar, a lo­cal po­lice of­fi­cial.

Haryana, gov­erned by Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s na­tion­al­ist Bharatiya Janata Party, is a largely ru­ral and con­ser­va­tive state.

“Our prime min­is­ter says save your daugh­ter and ed­u­cate them, how can we do that?” the mother of the vic­tim told re­porters Fri­day, re­fer­ring to a 2015 cam­paign launched by Modi in Haryana called “Save your daugh­ters, Ed­u­cate your daugh­ters”. (AFP)
