The mother in her police complaint stated that the victim was abducted by the accused on Friday night, who took her to an abandoned house in auto rickshaw, where they subjected her to repeated sexual assault.
“The victim also complained to us that she was forced to drink a soft drink laced with sedatives after which she fell unconscious. When she woke up the following day and realised that she was sexually assaulted, she tried to escape from there, but they thrashed her causing injuries to her head,” the police inspector said.
On Sunday night, the accused left the place. Later, some locals heard her cries and rescued her. Her mother, a widow, along with her brothers, rushed to the place and took her home. The next morning, they lodged the complaint with the police.
