A local BJP leader’s son is among the three men accused of gangraping a 36-year-old woman in Chhattisgarh’s Mahasamund district. While two of the accused — Devendra (23) and Farid Ali (26) — have been arrested, Princely Saluja, the son of local BJP leader, is absconding.
“On the night of October 11, the victim and her sister had stepped out of their home to relieve themselves. The three men were waiting for them, and forced the victim inside their vehicle. They took her to a secluded spot and allegedly raped her,” a senior police officer said.
The victim works as a cook in a private school in Balodabazaar in Bhatapara district. She was visiting her parents’ home in Pirda village in the Basna area for the Dussehra festival and had stayed back. According to the police, the victim filed the complaint on October 14 and two of the accused were arrested next day.
