AMBALA: A 17-year-old girl was repeatedly abused by seven people for the past four years in Ambala. This incident came to light when one of the accused Lucky was arrested on Sunday morning.
Reportedly, Lucky had kidnapped the victim from Ambala on Wednesday. He took her to a secluded place and raped her. The victim, somehow, reported the incident to the police on Saturday. Consequently, a case was registered and police started conducting the raids.
Inspector Rajni, the in-charge of All Women Police Station informed that Lucky was sent to judicial custody on Saturday itself.
The victim's sordid tale of sexual abuse began in April, 2014 when she met one Raghav Kumar, an employee of electricity department in Ambala. The victim told police that Raghav became friendly with her and abused her at his residence near Arya Samaj Mandir in Ambala. He drugged her at that time. When she came to her senses, she tried to report the incident but the accused promised to marry her, the victim alleged. Reportedly, the accused had shot a video of the entire incident and threatened to put the footage online.
The teenage victim was introduced to Naresh by Raghav claiming that he was an unmarried person. Naresh too is learned to have abused her. Besides Raghav and Naresh other electricity department employees booked by police include Sandeep Kumar, Sahil, Vimal kumar and Madan Lal.
Barring Sandeep, all the accused have abused the victim at different times and places.
"This is a very serious case and we are verifying each and every fact. Lucky has been sent to judicial custody. Now we are examining the role of other accused and police parties are conducting raids to arrest them. We are hopeful of clear this case by Monday evening," said the police officer. "Relevant sections like rape charges and violation of POCSO Act and IT act have been added in the case," she added.
Police confirmed that the victim was medically examined as well.
