In a heart-wrenching incident that shook the community, a 14-year-old girl was allegedly assaulted by three men as she was on her way to school. The incident took place near her village's culvert, where the perpetrators reportedly took turns to commit the heinous act in an adjacent sugarcane field. The incident came to light after the girl's mother filed a complaint with the police.

The authorities took swift action, and based on the complaint, a rape case was registered against the three youths involved. One of the suspects has been arrested, but the investigation continues to bring all perpetrators to justice.

Disturbingly, the victim's family has also reported that the accused filmed the assault and posted it on social media. However, no such video evidence has been discovered thus far, according to the SHO.

The young girl's well-being and justice are being prioritized as she underwent a medical examination, and her statement was recorded in court. 

In a recent update, Circle Officer Shreyas Tripathi shared that preliminary investigations have suggested the victim might have had a relationship with one of the accused, raising further questions about the circumstances leading to the incident.
