Singh said the rape survivor’s father first raised an alarm about his daughter when he returned home on Sunday evening and found her missing and the main gate wide open. Police said when he was looking for his daughter, he saw a car approach the locality and dump someone on the lane.

It was his daughter.

The SHO also said the family filed the first information report (FIR) on Monday morning after his daughter’s condition stabilised and she spoke about the incident. “A case was filed against the accused under sections 376 D (gangrape), 363 (abduction) of the Indian Penal Code, and the relevant sections of the Pocso Act. The medical test of the girl was also done; the report is awaited,” he said.

As news of the gruesome crime spread, people staged a protest at the hospital to demand action against the culprits. On and off social media, leaders of the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party attacked the Ashok Gehlot government over the crime and claimed that the situation would improve if people voted for the BJP. State elections in Rajasthan are due to be held on November 25.
