Maha: 17-year-old girl gang-raped in Nagpur; kin among three held
Three persons have been arrested in connection with the alleged rape of a 17-year-old girl in Maharashtra's Nagpur district, police said on Friday.
The Mankapur police on Thursday registered an offence against the accused under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, an official said.
According to the police, one of the accused is a distant relative of the victim, who is a Class 12 student, and he had been sexually exploiting her for over a year.
The trio forced the teenager to consume alcohol and later raped her and shot videos of her, he said.
They also threatened to make the videos viral on social media if she informed anyone about the incident, the official said.
The girl subsequently told her family about the ordeal and a complaint was lodged with the police and the accused were arrested, he said.
