They asked me what I was doing. I told them I was going for my coaching class. They offered me a glass of water. I drank it and fell unconscious. They took me into their car near a well. When I regained consciousness, another boy Nishu was already there. I started crying. All three of them gave me another laced drink. After drinking it, I fell unconscious and all three raped me. Then they dropped me near the bus stand around 4.53 pm. Manish also called my father and mother. My brother picked me from the bus stand,” the girl stated in her complaint.
The parents of the victim have alleged that the police refused to take their complaint and file a First Information Report (FIR). After the accused threatened them not to pursue the matter, the parents have been running from one police station to another, hoping to file a complaint.
However, a police officer at Rewari, said a ‘zero FIR’ has been filed against the accused based on the woman’s complaint and the relevant police station is investigating the matter. Rajesh Duggal, SP (Rewari) said, “The moment we received complaint, we promptly initiated action and registered the FIR.
