Gujarat Horror: 14-Year-Old Girl Dragged Behind Bushes, Gang Raped In Vadodara
Less than a day after the horrific gang-rape and brutal murder of a veterinary doctor came to light from Telangana, another sexual crime, this time, in Gujarat has surfaced, where a minor girl was raped by two men at the Navlakhi Ground on Thursday.
The 14-year-old girl was learning how to drive at the Navlakhi Ground located along Palace Road in Moti Bagh area when the incident took place. At the time, she was accompanied by a friend who was helping her out.
In his statement to the police, the friend claimed that two men approached them and started threatening them without any provocation. They chased the friend away and forcefully dragged the minor girl towards the other end of the ground where they took turns to rape her.
Escaping from the location, the girl’s friend reached the nearest police station and alerted them about the gruesome incident. A team of personnel rushed to the spot and launched a search operation that lasted for about an hour-and-a-half. They found her lying behind a thick set of bushes, covered in blood.
The child was taken to the Shree Sir Sayaji General Hospital in Vadodara where she is currently undergoing treatment. Bruises on her body indicate that the accused thrashed the girl mercilessly after sexually assaulting her. Meanwhile, a medico-legal test has confirmed that the child was raped.
A case of gang-rape has been registered against the two unknown assailants and teams of local police personnel have been formed to identify and nab them.
Once arrested, they will be charged with relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
