Two men rape minor girl on pretext of celebrating Friendship Day
Two men allegedly raped a 16-year-old girl after taking her out on the pretext of celebrating the Friendship Day here, a police official said today.
The duo approached the girl last evening and asked her out to celebrate the Friendship Day. Since the teenager was known to them, she went out, he said.
The accused warned her of dire consequences if she told anyone about the incident and later dropped her near her home, he said.
The victim lodged a complaint with the Dombivili police station following which the two were arrested, said the official.
One of the accused, who is 22, is into fish hatchery business, while the other is a college student, he said.
They were booked under the IPC section 376D (gangrape) and relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO), Pawar added.
