Maharashtra: A 13-year-old girl was allegedly gagged, dragged into a house and gangraped by three men in Cuffe Parade area in Mumbai.
The girl was gang-raped by her neighbors on 10th June. According to police, the incident took place around 8 pm on Monday, when the girl had stepped out of the house to throw garbage.
The three men, all her neighbours, had reportedly kept an eye on the girl and as soon as they found her alone, one of them dragged her inside his house and raped her, police said.
The accused was accompanied by two more men who locked the door.
A police officer said, “After one of the accused gagged her and dragged her into his house, his two accomplices locked the room from inside and covered them with two bedsheets, so that her cries for help could not be heard from outside.”
“Case has been registered under relevant sections of the IPC and POCSO act. Accused are currently absconding,” Investigating officer said.
