As per the Police, the victim lives in a hostel in Alwar. Two youth in her neighbourhood in the village had been pressuring her for friendship, which she repeatedly denied. On February 2, 2021, Talim and Amin again pressurized her for friendship while she was going to government school from home. When she declined, they gave her a drink laced with sedatives.
According to the complaint filed by the father, the victim fell unconscious after having the drink and was taken to the nearby fields. The accused gang raped her and made a pornographic video of her. When she regained consciousness, they threatened her not to tell anyone else they would kill her and the family. They continued to blackmail her based on the video clip they made and gang-raped her several times.
Apart from raping her repeatedly, they allegedly also extorted money from her. The victim has alleged that they took her to E-Mitra and withdrew around Rs 7,500 in three instalments. She did not reveal what was happening to her to anyone out of fear. However, the daughter-in-law in the family came to know about the incident and informed the family. The father of the victim reached out to the Police and filed a case against the accused.
SHO Chandrashekhar, Barodameo Police Station, said that a case had been registered against the two accused and the associates. An investigation is underway.
