Student, 19, Who Topped CBSE Board Exam Allegedly Gang-Raped In Haryana

Gurgaon: A 19-year-old college student who was rewarded by the President after she topped the CBSE board exam was allegedly kidnapped and gang-raped by a group of men in Haryana on Wednesday.
She was allegedly raped till she fell unconscious, and dumped at a bus stand.

The second-year student was on her way to a coaching centre near her village when three young men, who came in a car, allegedly kidnapped her and dragged her to a field, where they raped her.

A few other men who were already at the field also took turns to rape her, the police said. The woman says all the men are from her village.

Senior police officer AS Chawla said a medical examination of the woman has been conducted. “We are looking to arrest the three accused… they dropped her back (at the bus shelter) and called her parents to tell them about her location,” the police officer said.

Her parents have alleged the police initially refused to take their complaint and file a First Information Report or FIR. They said they had been running from one police station to another, hoping to file a complaint, after the accused threatened them.

“My daughter was rewarded by Modi ji after she topped the CBSE board exams. Modi ji says ‘beti padho, beti bacho’, but how? I want justice for my daughter. Police have taken no action yet,” the woman’s mother told news agency ANI.
