Three minor boys were held Friday for allegedly gangraping a 10-year-old late on Wednesday in a hut near Jabalpur town in the presence of the victim’s six-year-old sister.
The mother of the two sisters had gone to Mandla when the three boys, aged 15, 14 and 12, entered the hut located on the outskirts under the Gadha Police Station and took turns to rape the elder sister around 10 pm.
The six-year-old was sleeping nearby and woke up on hearing her elder sister’s cry.
“The mother returned nearly 24 hours later and found the victim almost unconscious,’’ in-charge of Gadha Police Station Bharat Singh Rajput told The Indian Express. He said the victim knew the accused boys who live nearby.
