Even though the police have arrested three persons in connection a gangrape of minor Dalit girl, the victim’s family alleged on Friday that the police are not doing justice with the case by not arresting key accused.

“I was at home on when a girl from the village called me to her house citing some urgent work. From there, a photographer from nearby Daduana village took me to some building where they kept me for 11 days. During 11 days of abduction, they raped by after forcefully injecting drugs to me,” she said.

Jasbir Singh, uncle of the victim, said the police have arrested three persons in this connection but are sparing those who played key role in the crime. He said the key culprits are still roaming free.
