The residents of Kanjimulla village here in south Kashmir’s Shopian district held protest demonstrations after a girl was allegedly gang raped by one of her neighbours and his friends.
The district police lodged a case in this regard and investigation has been initiated.
“I was coming out of the washroom of my house Saturday evening when somebody threw chilly water over my face and forcibly bundled me into a Santro vehicle,” said the victim alleging that one of her kidnappers was her neighbor.
She said that her gun wielding kidnappers, one of whom she recognized as her neighbor, took her to some unidentified location where she was beaten up mercilessly and her clothes ripped apart.
“I was drugged and I felt unconsciously. I cannot remember whatever happened afterward,” the victim said.
She said that when she came to senses, she found herself at some unknown place.
People from a village in the neighboring Kulgam district said they found her in a half-conscious state.
“Her body was badly bruised,” the villagers said.
Soon the news of the incident went viral in the area and people took to streets demanding immediate arrest of the culprits.
The family of the victim alleged that one of their neighbors had done this because of animosity between the two families.
“We had some dispute with their family earlier and this person attacked and injured the victim then also. We lodged a police complaint back then too. However, police did not take any action,” said a relative of the girl.
Meanwhile, police, taking cognizance of the incident, lodged an FIR and initiated the investigation.
