Kidnapped, gangraped, sold, Karnal girl rescued

The Karnal police Wednesday produced in court three persons arrested in a case involving abduction, gangrape and trafficking of a 17-year-old girl. The court sent them to judicial custody. The girl was rescued by the police on January 14, almost three months after she went missing. She was allegedly taken away from near her home, gangraped and sold, forcing her into prostitution.

On October 31 last year, the girl had stepped out to buy groceries but did not return home. Her mother filed a complaint. On November 1, she told the police that her daughter had a mobile phone that was given by their neighbour. She alleged that the nieghbour's son played a key role in the kidnapping. The police made him the prime accused. He is still at large.

Two persons were arrested on November 5. "After that we arrested the neighbour on November 9," the Karnal police spokesperson said.

The police said they traced the girl to a Sonepat house. "We raided the place and rescued her. Three persons had kept the girl in their custody at a house. We arrested and produced them in court today," the spokesperson said.
