Minor Raped By 22 Men For Seven Months In Chennai:- In an extremely distressing and hideous crime, a minor girl was raped by 22 men for a period of seven months, which took place in Chennai.
A class seven girl who has a hearing disorder was sexually assaulted for more than seven months by 22 men including security guards, elevator operators, and plumbers at an apartment complex in Purasawalkam in the heart of the Chennai. Police have looked into the matter and arrested 18 suspects and are hunting for the others active in the incident.
According to police, the perpetrators sedated the victim with injections, offered her drug-laced soft drinks and a powder that they made her sniff before sexually molesting her. Much to the shock and dismay, the assaulters had video-graphed themselves in the act.
The perpetrators blackmailed the girl into silence for seven months with the menace of releasing the videos and resorting to hostility.
The whole issue came into light when the girl on Saturday shared her lurid trauma with her elder sister, a college student, who had visited home from Delhi. The elder sister instantly informed her parents who lodged a complaint with women police.
The girl told police that 66-year-old Ravi Kumar, an elevator operator in the largely unoccupied 300-flat complex, first sexually violated her. Three days later, Ravi brought two men who were drunk and smelling of alcohol, videotaped themselves raping her. Other men soon joined in the horrific crime and continued the assault on the little girl repeatedly.
As soon as the girl gets down from her school van, accused Ravi who was blackmailing her would lead away from her to the spot where he and his aides would violate her.
Apparently, the girl's father was away at work through most of the day. Shockingly, the girl's mother who is a homemaker couldn't find anything suspicious when the girl was coming home late from school. The girl's mother assumed that her daughter was playing with friends in the complex.
Cops seized syringes, empty soft drink bottle and sent them to Forensics lab to determine what drugs were used. The officers also seized used condoms for tests.
