Rahul and his aides held the girl captive at the Shakya farmhouse in Kankerkhera, and instructed two people to keep a watch on her. Despite the guards, she managed to slip out on Saturday night.

Superintendent of police (Meerut city) Alok Priyadarshi said, “Modinagar police are investigating the case and have taken the girl and the arrested men along with them.”

The girl will undergo a medical examination after which she will be presented in court to record her statement.
