A 55-year-old businessman was today arrested in connection with the alleged rape of a minor girl by 100-odd people over a period of time in connivance with her father, taking the total number of arrests in the case to 59.

The man identified as Moideen is a native of Perumbavoor in Ernakulam district, officials of the Crime branch which is probing the case said.

The 59 arrested include the girl's father, a retired Naval official and CPM's local secretary of Mazhavannoor.

A 53-year-old doctor, listed as an accused in the case, allegedly committed suicide in Saudi Arabia some days back, while another accused was missing from Daman in Saudi Arabia since the past one week, the officials said.

The Crime branch is also on the look out for another NRI doctor.Five teams have been sent to various parts of Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu to nab the remaining accused, the officials said.

In a police complaint last month, the 14-year-old girl had said her father, who used to do small roles in Malayalam films, was the first to rape her. He then took her to various places and offered her to at least 100 men.

Her mother was also arrested for suppressing information but was later released on bail.
The girl, who has studied up to 10th standard, is presently in a rescue home and has expressed interest in pursuing higher studies
