According to police, the girl’s friend had taken her to the park around 8 pm on the day. As they were about to return around 9 pm, the two were attacked by the six-member gang. They assaulted the male friend, dragged him to an isolated place near the park, stripped and video-graphed him. They then gang-raped the girl in front of him and video-graphed that too, the police said.

Later, the gang members let them off. The police said the minor girl spent the night at the boy’s house. She returned home the next evening and told her mother about the incident. Subsequently, the girl and her mother lodged a complaint with the RS Puram all-woman police on Friday.

The team headed by Police inspector Prabhadevi subsequently arrested T Rahul (21), R Prakash (22), S Karthikeyan (28), and S Narayanamurthy (30), all residents of Seeranaickenpalayam on Friday. They were produced before the district Mahila court and remanded in judicial custody in the Coimbatore central prison.

The horrific crime at Coimbatore has occurred at a time when the entire country is shocked following the barbaric killing of a veterinary doctor in Hyderabad, who was brutally raped, murdered and her body was set ablaze on Wednesday.
