The Chandigarh police on Sunday booked four youths after a 20-year-old Mohali girl, who had been missing since August 2017, accused them of abducting and raping her.

The girl, who is a first-year student, told the Sector-34 police that she was waiting outside her college in Chandigarh when the four youths — who stayed in her neighbourhood — offered her lift in their car.

She alleged the accused offered her a soft drink laced with sedatives and took her to Kanpur, where they gangraped her at a house for months .

On January 12, the girl reportedly managed to escape and reach the Kanpur railway station, from where she called her brother. Her brother-in-law, who stays in Uttar Pradesh, reached the station and brought her back home, states the complaint.

Main accused tells different version

One of the accused, identified as Babloo, reportedly told the police that the girl and he were in love and got married in court. He claimed they even sought protection from the high court. Police said they have registered a case of gangrape and are investigating the case.
