A minor girl who should have arrived safely at her hostel because of the presence of father’s friend as guardian with her actually got gang-raped on the way.
The instance is of Jashpur’s Farsabahar police station limits where a father trusted his friend to safely take his daughter to the hostel.
But the friend suddenly had other ideas and took her instead to forested area of Kotaibara and began molesting her.
While the girl was resisting those attempts, their arrived on the scene four boys.
They had sniffed the situation and thus began demanding money from the man.
The man identified by the police as Thakur Prasad, left the spot on the pretext of getting money from his house.
Upon finding the girl alone, police said, three boys took turns to rape her.
The man Thakur Prasad did finally arrive at the scene with money and then got the girl from the clutches of the accused and left her at the hostel.
But the incident, that is said to have happened on March 12 of this year, could not stay concealed for long.
The girl, despite being threatened by the accused boys, confided in her female co-hostelers who then tipped off the hostel warden.
The matter reached police thereafter as the case was of sexual assault of a minor girl.
Police then registered complaint and has now arrested the four accused.>
