Keonjhar: A 12-year-old girl was allegedly abducted and gang raped by two youths under Jhumpura police limits of the district.
The girl's mother has alleged that her daughter was kidnapped when she was on her way to a local market. The youths raped her and later decided to drop her at the same place from where they had abducted her. But unfortunately, the girl slipped from the two-wheeler and the vehicle met with an accident. Not knowing what to do, the miscreants fled the scene leaving behind the girl critically injured at the spot.
A few hours later, the minor girl was rescued and admitted to the district headquarters hospital. One of her legs has been fractured while there were injury marks on her body due to the accident, sources said.
Meanwhile, an investigation has been initiated based on a complaint lodged by members of One Stop Centre 'Sakhi'.
“We have received a complaint of rape. The case is under investigation and we are sure the accused will be nabbed soon,” said Suresh Patra, DSP Crime, Keonjhar.
