A 13-year-old girl was gangraped thrice by nine men in less than 24 hours, passed on by truck driver to truck driver in MP’s Umaria district, on January 11 and 12. The horror and physical trauma has shocked her to the point she is unable to speak properly. According to the Umaria Police officials, the 13-year-old girl was first kidnapped by a young man, who is a known person to the victim, on January 4. The victim was then raped by him and six of his friends for two days. The accused then let her go on January 5 and threatened the victim with her life if she tried to lodge a complaint to the police. The misery of the minor victim continued six days later as she was again abducted on January 11 by one of the seven men who raped her earlier. She was also held captive in jungle and roadside shops where three of them again raped her, the police said further. The three men later let her go again.
The horror didn't end there as after being let go by three men, the victim was again kidnapped by two truck drivers and allegedly raped by both of them. The victim then somehow managed to flee the place and return to her home on Friday morning, the police officials added. A complaint was filed on Friday after which multiple teams of the police conducted searches and arrested 6 accused so far. "We've so far arrested six accused and hope to catch the others. The case is registered under POSCO and relevant sections of the IPC," police spokesperson Arvind Tiwari said. The shocking incident came amid CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led BJP government's 'Samman' campaign, which is a fortnight public awareness drive about the crime against women.
