A Class-12 girl was kidnapped and gangraped in the forest area behind Kalagram by four youth on Friday late evening. In her complaint to the police on Saturday, the girl has alleged that she was kidnapped from Maulijagran in a car when she was returning home after tuition classes.

"I was taken to the forest area behind Kalagram by the four accused and raped one by one. They dumped me in the area and escaped," the victim's complaint to the police reads.

The police said the medical examination of the girl had been conducted and there were some visible injury marks on her body, suggesting sexual assault.

"The complainant is unable to remember the make and the registration number of the car as there was no electricity in Maulijagran when the assailants pushed her into the car. There are injury marks that suggest a struggle during the kidnap," a police official said, adding that the details of the car were being investigated after questioning local residents, none of whom has reported to have seen a car in the area around the time of the incident.

"We have identified some suspects and raids are on to nab them. A case has been registered under Sections 363 (kidnapping), 376 (rape) and 376D (raping of a woman by more than one person) and the Pocso Act at the Manimajra police station.
