How easy is to tell that in Bhopal, an 11-year old girl was brutally gang-raped at gunpoint at her residence in Gwalior in front of her mother and teenage brother, police said but the one who goes through this pain can only understand the same.
According to Bhopal police, there were three men who were arrested at night in connection with the incident that took place in the worst hours of the day.
The girl was at home with her mother and brother when three men violently entered into their house. While two of the accused threatened to shoot her mother and 14-year old brother, the third one raped the girl, Gwalior’s Bijoli Police Station in-charge Raghuvir Meena told PTI over the phone.
The accused, who sexually assaulted the girl, was identified as Jhanwar Singh Kushwaha (36), while two others who helped him in the crime were Raju Kushwaha (25) and Ramniwas Kushwah (24).
Investigations are underway.
The accused were booked under sections of IPC, including 376 D (gang rape), 450 (house-trespass in order to commit offence) 506 (criminal intimidation), 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) and relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO).
