A teen-age-girl in Bihar’s Rohtas district was abducted and kept detained for five days only to be raped multiple times by many people in a village in Gaya district. The 14-year-old had run away from her stepmother when she was taken away by a woman. The woman held her captive for five days and let her get gang raped by villagers after which, she was sold to another man to get further raped.
“The girl was a native of Sanjhauli village in Rohtas district and was having trouble with her stepmother. The girl had left home and reached Koderma railway station in Jharkhand where she was allegedly lured by a woman named Nonmatia Devi, who promised to fix her marriage and took the girl to her house in Mahadeopur,” said Paraiya police station house officer Chandan Kumar Singh.
“Nonmatia’s husband is not there and she is in a live-in relationship with one Mahendra Das, who raped the girl on the first day. The second day she was raped by one Sunil Singh, a panchayat samiti member and an acquaintance of Mahendra and Nonmatia,” the SHO said.
The ordeal continued for days after which Nonmatia sold the girl to another person, Rajesh Kumar, for Rs 21,000.
Rajesh took her to his house, where he and his acquaintances raped her. The girl, police sources said, somehow managed to escape from their clutches and reach the cops.
However, Gaya senior superintendent of police (SSP) Rajeev Mishra said the cops rescued the girl after receiving information about her. Four persons, including Nonmatia, Mahendra and Sunil, have been arrested. The other people involved have been identified and raids are on to nab them.
The arrested persons are being interrogated and will be produced in the court later.
