A 17-year-old disabled girl was gang raped in Dausa district of Rajasthan on Thursday, the police said on Sunday. Three of the five named accused have been detained, they added.

Jaipur range inspector general of police (IGP) S Sengathir said that the girl’s mother filed a complaint on Sunday afternoon about the sexual assault. The woman said she and her daughter live in Mandawari police station area of the district while her husband lives in Dubai.

“In her complaint, the mother said that three days ago in the evening when the girl was alone (because the woman had to go to her parents), five men identified as Anil, Kirori, Dharmendra, Rajkesh and Dhara Meena abducted her and took her to an isolated place where they raped her,” said Sengathir.

The IGP added that the girl was so traumatized that she didn’t tell her mother anything for two days.

Another police official from Dausa, who requested anonymity, said on Saturday evening the survivor, who cannot speak, explained to her mother through sign language about the incident when she started suffering from pain. Later, the mother shared this with her family.
