A horrific case regarding a minor teen has come to the fore in Rajasthan’s Bhilwara. The terror-stricken teenager ran half a kilometre naked after three men abducted, thrashed and raped her on her way to a temple.

She didn't even stop when a shopkeeper tried to help her. It was only after some time, that the girl stopped and the man gave his clothes to her and took her back to her house.

According to the police, one of the girl's friends, who escaped, reached the nearby market and sought help from a shopkeeper, narrating how his bike was snatched and how his minor friend was abducted.

When the shopkeeper reached the spot, he saw three people thrashing the girl.

“They fled after seeing me. But the girl was so terrified that she ran without clothes for over half-a-kilometre. Initially, she refused to trust me and take my help. But after a few minutes, she trusted me. I gave my clothes to her.”

Bhilwara SP Harendra Mahwar said the girl and her two friends were on their way to a temple when three suspects, consuming liquor on the roadside, chased them. "While her friends escaped, the teenage girl was abducted and taken to an isolated place and raped," he said.

A case has been lodged under the laws dealing with sexual offences against children and atrocities against Scheduled Castes. Her parents too lodged the complaint with the police.

The statements of the shopkeeper, the victim and her friends have been recorded. All three accused, identified as Raju Kahar and Kailash Kahar and Narayan Gurjar, have been arrested, Mahwar said.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Bharat Singh the police had collected broken bangles, liquor bottles and blood stains from the crime spot, adding that the case would be fast-tracked.
