Another Haryana girl gang raped

 A teenaged girl in Haryana’s Sonepat district has alleged that she was gang raped by four persons.

The 13-year-old victim alleged the incident occured on Friday night in Gannaur, they said. The victim’s mother, who lodged the complaint said her daughter had come out of the house to answer nature’s call, when the accused overpowered her and assaulted her.

The mother rushed to the girl’s rescue when she heard her cries after which the accused ran away, she told police.

Police said while the accused were at large, the medical examination of the girl was done. 

They said they were also investigating a possible link between the Gannaur incident and another rape case in Matan village in Jhajjar district about a month ago.

A maternal uncle of the Gannaur rape victim had allegedly raped one of the accused’s sister. The accused in the Matan incident is at large, they said, adding they are investigating if the family of the girl from Gannaur may have filed a false complaint as a retaliatory act to put pressure on the Matan rape victim to withdraw her complaint.
