INDIA: 2 girls kidnapped, raped by 9 men for more than 14 days

Two teenage girls from Chhattisgarh’s Koriya district (India) were allegedly confined and raped by nine men for over a fortnight, police said today. The girls, aged 17 and 15 years, were rescued by the police yesterday.

Police Nivedita Sharma said, “On March 4, the main accused Abhijeet Pal alias Pinku (20) took one of victims, with whom he was having an affair, on the pretext of marrying her. A friend of the victim accompanied them.”

“Later, Pal and eight of his friends repeatedly raped the two after confining them in Ledri and Bijuri villages,” she said.

Officials said a complaint was filed by the victims’ families on the morning of March 18. The ASP said that a police team, on the basis of a tip-off, raided a place near Bijuri railway station in the early hours yesterday and rescued the girls.

Seven of the nine accused were arrested during the rescue, Sharma said. A manhunt was underway for two more people, she said.
