A 22-year-old girl student was allegedly gang-raped by three college mates, who committed the crime after offering her a soft drink laced with sedatives in Pratap Nagar area.
The accused are friends of the victim’s brother. The accused lured her with the promise of a good job in the city and raped her after spiking her drink with sedatives, the Sanganer police said on Friday. The police have started an investigation in the matter.
According to police, the 22-year-old victim hails from Bharatpur. “The girl had shifted from Bharatpur to Jaipur after completing her class XII at her native place. She used to live with her brother,” said police officials.
Meanwhile, one Vijay Kumar Gautam used to frequent the girl’s house.
“Vijay was her brother’s friend and used to come often at the girl’s residence. The girl was in dire need of a job and Vijay got her placed in a company. However after some time, the man lured her with a promise of a better job. He asked her to accompany him to the new company,” said officials. They further said, “The man took the girl to a flat in Pratap Nagar area where he, along with two other men - identified as Yogendra and Virendra - gave the girl a drink laced with sedatives. After consuming the drink, the girl became unconscious. Then, the men raped her.”
The victim filed an “istgasa” (complaint) in the court early this month and a first information report (FIR) was lodged at the Sanganer police station after the court’s order. The accused- Vijay Kumar, Yogendra Kumar and Virendra Kumar - are yet to be traced, the police said.
The preliminary investigation has indicated that the girl was having a live-in relationship with one of the accused who had promised to marry her, but when he backed out, the girl moved court, the officials said.
