Amid widespread outrage over the gangrape of three minor girls in different parts of Rajasthan, one of the victims along with her mother has threatened to commit suicide if the accused are not punished in the case. The girl, aged about 15 years, who was at her maternal uncle's home in Alwar's Bansoor area, was allegedly taken to a nearby school and gangraped by three boys, who suddenly pounced on her. After filing the FIR, the girl has given her statement and a case has also been registered in the court under Section 164 in the Court.
Asked if she knew the three accused boys, the 15-year-old told India Today, "No, I do not know them. I was brought home by my mother and my maternal aunt. Yes, punishment must be given. If punishment is not given, then I will commit suicide. All I want is they should be punished".
"As I stood up after relieving myself, three boys came from behind and dropped handkerchief on my face. As I shouted, my mother and my maternal aunt came over there. Seeing them coming, the trio ran away from there on a bike. My mother and maternal aunt then brought me home", she added. The girl's mother, while speaking to the leading daily, also demanded strictest punishment of the accused.
One of the accused was allegedly lynched to death by the victim's family in Hasraura village under Sadar Police Station of Rajasthan's Alwar. The body was found around 12 kms away from the crime spot.
"One of the boys was caught and he was beaten up as well, he has died as well and the two boys, they had run away as well, we have nabbed them after investigation...", Ramji Lal, the Investigating Officer in the case stated.
In a separate incident in Churu's Bhanipura area, a six-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her relative. In another incident, an eight-year-old girl was raped in Khurd village of Dholpur on Thursday.
These incidents of minor rape come to light days after five accused had allegedly gangraped a woman in front of her husband when she was going with him on a motorcycle on Thanagaji-Alwar road on April 26. A chargesheet has been filed at a Alwar court in the incident.
