A 19-year-old girl, a CBSE top­per, was al­legedly abducted near her coach­ing acad­emy in Kan­ina of Ma­hen­dra­grah dis­trict, taken to a farm near Jha­jjhar and gan­graped by three men on Wed­nes­day.

Po­lice sources said the girl, who knew all the ac­cused, was given a drink laced with seda­tives be­fore she was raped. The ac­cused then left her in an un­con­scious state at Kan­ina bus stand. Upon learn­ing the girl’s or­deal, her par­ents ap­proached the po­lice to lodge a com­plaint. Ac­cord­ing to the girl’s fam­ily, the po­lice ini­tially re­fused to file a com­plaint. “We were then forced to

go the women po­lice sta­tion and file an FIR,” her fa­ther said.

In-charge of the Re­wari women po­lice sta­tion Saro­jbala said a zero FIR had been filed in her po­lice sta­tion and was later trans­ferred to the Kan­ina po­lice sta­tion. A zero FIR can be filed at any po­lice sta­tion and later trans­ferred to the po­lice sta­tion un­der whose ju­ris­dic­tion the crime has taken place.

Three teams have been formed to nab the ac­cused. “Once her med­i­cal re­ports are out and she is out of trauma, probe would gather speed. All cul­prits would be brought to jus­tice,” a se­nior po­lice of­fi­cial said.

Doc­tors said the girl is out of dan­ger and her med­i­cal re­ports will be out in a day or two.

THE girl had joined the coach­ing in­sti­tute in Kan­ina only a day be­fore her al­leged gang rape. Her teacher at the coach­ing acad­emy, who knew her even be­fore she started en­rolled there, said she was a very good, de­cent girl. “She came with her fa­ther to the in­sti­tute on Septem­ber 5 and her classes be­gan on Septem­ber 11. The fol­low­ing day, when she did not come to class, I called her fa­ther to en­quire. He said ev­ery­thing was fine and she would be com­ing back shortly. Hence, I did not press fur­ther,” he said while adding that she did not have a cell phone be­cause she wanted to con­cen­trate on her stud­ies.
