A 16-year-old girl was allegedly kidnapped and raped by two men in Dahisar last week. Police have registered a case against a few persons who allegedly raped the minor after inviting her to a birthday party.
Police said the girl’s family had filed a missing person complaint with the Dahisar police when she did not return home on April 26. On Friday, the girl came back home and told her mother who works with a bar that she had been kidnapped and raped at the party. The girl lives with her stepmother and father in Dahisar.
On Friday, a case of gang rape and kidnapping was registered with the Dahisar police. “The girl told us that she was asked by one of her female friends to accompany her to a party at a bungalow in Kandivli. The girl claimed that her drink was spiked at the party after which she became semi-conscious. She said two middle-aged men then raped her,” said a senior police officer from the north region, under which Dahisar falls.
The girl told the police that she was informed at the party that she had been sold to prostitution. Police suspect this to be a prostitution racket. There were many other youngsters at the party, the officer said.
The police have registered a case against multiple persons including the female friend of the victim who took her to the party.
“Our investigations are on in the matter and we are confirming all information provided by the victim. Nobody has been arrested yet but they will be soon. It could be a prostitution racket targeting minors,” said additional commissioner of police Sunil Paraskar.
The police have identified one of the accused.
