Case registered
“We have registered a case of gang-rape against Ramesh, Narsinharam and Ratnaram and the woman, Andu Devi. The woman is a close relative of the victim. Initial investigations revealed that Andu Devi wanted to push the minor into prostitution,” said a police officer of Barmer range.

Police informed that Andu has a dispute with the victim’s family over their ancestral property.

As she wanted to seek revenge, Andu convinced the three men to gang-rape the victim. She even assured that no police action will be taken against them.

“Being a relative, Andu was a frequent visitor to the victim’s home. She would often take her along to various places where the three accused would rape her,” said a police officer.
