The victim knew one of the rapist, as he and her father work as taxi drivers. He is a resident of Saharanpur, UP, and for the past one year near the house of the minor girl in Parwanoo.
He lured the girl on the pretext of buying her new clothes and brought her to his home in Chandigarh.
The girl told the police that the man raped her several times in four days. On Saturday, three of his friends joined him and ravaged her. She said she managed to escape on the pretext of relieving herself. She reached the Sector 34 park around 2am, where she met a man and narrated the incident. He informed the police and cops from Sector 34 reached the spot.
Police informed the child helpline and counsellors also reached there. The girl was taken to GMH-16 for medical examination, which confirmed gangrape. Police then moved the girl to children’s home in Sector 15.
