Police arrest 3 for gang-raping a Dalit minor

Bhopal: Police have arrested three young men for allegedly gang-raping a minor and circulating their crime in an MMS here in Madhya Pradesh. 

However, three other accused in the crime, including the son of a deputy collector, are on the run. 
 The 14-year-old Dalit minor would have silently suffered the trauma and never lodged an FIR, had it not been for this MMS video of the crime. The 6 men who allegedly raped her circulated the video and this is how the matter came to light when the MMS reached the police.

The victim, whose name has not been revealed said, “I had come to Mandla about eight months back to my relatives’ place and had gone for a dip in the Narmada when one of these boys offered me a lift on his bike. Thereafter I was taken to jungle and raped in turn by all six of them. They also filmed their act with their mobile phone and threatened to show it to everyone if I told about the incident to anyone."

Three of the suspects have been arrested, including the son of a head constable. The other three including the son of a deputy collector are absconding.

The police have also recovered the motorcycle used to pick up the victim and the mobile phone on which the MMS video was captured.
