An 18-year-old girl from a Sanand village in Ahmedabad was allegedly raped and poisoned by her former employer after being abducted to Goa last month. An FIR at the Sanand police station was lodged late on Thursday night when the girl gained consciousness at the VS hospital in Ahmedabad,about three weeks after she consumed a poisonous substance.
