Rayagada: Three minors were detained today on the charges of gangraping a teenager at Sanatandra village under Kalyansinghpur police limits of Rayagada district, said IIC Sukuma Hansda.

According to a complaint filed by the 13-year-old girl's family, on January 1 she was out attending nature’s call when she was allegedly kidnapped by the three accused (all under-15). They forcefully took her to a nearby field and allegedly raped her by taking turns and then left her there. She somehow managed to reach her home and narrated her ordeal to her parents.

Fearing social stigma, her parents did not report the matter. But, later, under the family’s insistence, they filed a report. Following this, a medical examination was conducted of the survivor and the three accused.

The accused have been taken into custody and an investigation is underway.
