A victim of gang rape in Gorakhpur has attempted to commit suicide by consuming poison after the traumatic experience. She was reportedly raped on the night of 1st July. The girl is reportedly a minor.
According to the case registered with the Police, one of the accused named Mudassir had coaxed her into accompanying him on his bike and then kidnapped her. He then managed to take her to a secluded place where he raped her with his friends Akhtar and Safayat Ali. The father of the girl filed a complaint with the Police on Thursday after which a case was registered. All the accused are absconding.
The girl had consumed poison on that very night itself. She was rushed to a primary healthcare centre by her family which then referred her to the BRD Medical College. Her condition is said to be critical.
The girl also asserted that the kidnappers attempted to marry her off in a Temple. However, she somehow managed to escape and reached home. The accused reportedly lived in the same neighbourhood as the victim and were known to her. Communal tensions are prevailing in the area as the accused and the victim are from different communities.
The Police has registered a case against the three accused under sections 363, 366, 376 and other relevant sections of the POCSO Act. Sunil Kumar Gupta, SSP, has assured that the guilty will soon be apprehended by the Police.
