Bhadrak: A 17-year-old girl while returning home with her maternal cousin was allegedly ambushed by four youths and later gang-raped. The incident occurred at Chandabali today early morning.
As per Police reports, the duo were returning after watching a night show of ‘jatra’ at about 4 am today. They were hardly 400 metres away from their home when they ambushed by four youths. While one of them got hold of the brother, the other three took the survivor to nearby bushes.
They allegedly raped her one by one and even shot the dastardly act on their phones. They also threatened to leak the video if she told anyone. However, a few villagers heard the brother’s cries for help and rushed to help them.
They got hold of the youth who was near the brother, while the rest three fled from the spot. The one captured was tied to a pole.
On getting information, the Police rushed and rescued the youth. He was taken into custody and is being interrogated.
The locals also rescued the girl. After medical examination, the minor lodged a complaint at Chandabali Police station.
