Minor Dalit girl tortured, raped by 12 men for two months in Kerala; Police arrests 7 accused


Thiruvananthapuram, April 6: A minor Dalit girl was tortured and raped by at least 12 men during the last two months at Attingal bordering Thiruvananthapuram district, police said.

Seven persons, aged between 19 and 32 years, have been arrested in this connection and a search is on for the main accused and some others, who are absconding, they said.

Police said despite the torture she underwent, the 15-year-old girl had appeared for the just concluded Class X examinations this year as she was keen to write it.

The girl, who stays with her mentally challenged mother and a cousin brother, works as a cinematic dancer for a living.

The two main accused, her cousin’s friends, took the girl from nearby Attingal in their autorickshaw on February 2 stating that her cousin brother had fallen unconscious in an inebriated state. She was taken to a deserted spot and raped by the two, Amir and Anup Shah, police said.
