Ahmedabad/Rajkot:Residents of Yuvraj Nagar Colony in Rajkot district woke up to horrifying news on Friday. A 20-year-old mentally challenged girl from the area was abducted at knife-point and gang-raped for 10 days. Even more horrifying is the fact that the accused locked her up in a room filled with maggots and left her to die.
The monstrosity of the incident could be gauged from the fact that the mentally challenged girl was repeatedly raped for 10 days and kept in a filthy room, which was full of maggots. The perpetrators probably left her there to die, said an investigating cop.
The incident came to light after a passerby heard the victim wailing in pain. He gathered few people and informed police about the horrific ordeal.
Sources told Divyabhaskar.com (Gujrati arm of Dailybhaskar.com) that the victim’s parents are daily wage labourers. The girl was abducted while they were away at work.
Meanwhile, cops rounded up few people and have arrested four persons believed to have gang-rapoed the girl. The fifth accused is, however, absconding.
The accused have been identified as: Vedo, Nath, Kheema, Bholu and Haria.
The victim has been admitted to a hospital where she is recuperating. Doctors have described her condition as ‘stable’.
