On 18th of December, at about 3 PM, Bittu allegedly took the victim with him after threatening her. After noticing the disappearance, the girl’s family members promptly filed a disappearance complaint with the Mewana police, but the latter allegedly failed to carry out a proper investigation. The girl was finally located roaming on the Meerut-Mawana road in a dazed state on the 25th. Soon her family members rushed to the spot and brought her back home.
After being rescued, the girl alleged that, Bittu, his brother Shabaz, his uncle Mehtab and a few others, kidnapped and took her to a room in the jungle. There they allegedly gang-raped her and even recorded a video of her. On 25th they threw her on the road and fled from the scene.
