Raghunathpalli police in Odisha’s Steel Ciyt of Rourkela on Monday arrested three minor boys and forwarded them to the juvenile court for raping a minor tribal girl on Sunday evening.
As per sources in the police, the incident happened near Gadiatola slum under Raghunathpalli police station limits.
The minor girl was sitting with her minor boyfriend on a bench at about 7 pm on Sunday evening when she was attacked and raped by three minor boys. While two of the accused held the hands of the boy, the third one raped the girl. The other two then took turns in raping her.
The boyfriend of the girl somehow managed to free himself from the rapists a little later and dialled two of his friends and urged them to come to their rescue. His friends managed to capture one of the rapists while the other two ran away from the spot. They also informed Raghunathpalli police station about the incident and handed the detained rapist over to them.
The cops arrested the other two accused this morning. All three accused have been identified as minors. Police forwarded them to juvenile court this evening. They have also conducted a medical examination of the victim and the three accused.
“All the three rape accused are minor boys. They have been arrested and forwarded to juvenile court,” said TK Jena, DSP of Zone-II Rourkela.
