Amid the ongoing nationwide outrage over the gangrape of a woman by five men in front of her husband in Rajasthan’s Alwar, reports of three minor girls being raped in different parts of the state, including one in Alwar where the victim's family lynched one of the three accused, have surfaced.
The girl, aged about 15 years, was allegedly gangraped by three minors on May 14 in Hasraura village under Sadar Police Station of Alwar where she had gone to attend a relative's marriage.
"While one of the accused managed to flee, the other two were caught by the victims' family members and thrashed the next morning... Few hours later, one of them was found dead on the roadside," SP Paris Anil Deshmukh said.
