A 19-year-old college student who was felicitated by the President after she topped the CBSE board exam was allegedly kidnapped and gang-raped by a group of men in Haryana's Mahendragarh district on Thursday. The woman was left unconscious at a bus stand in the district, 116 km from Gurgaon.
The second-year college student was on her way to a coaching centre when three men allegedly kidnapped and dragged her to a field, where they raped her. A few other men who were already at the field also raped her, the police said.
Her parents have alleged the police refused to take their complaint and file a First Information Report or FIR. The parents said the accused have threatened them not to come after them.
A police officer at Rewari, however, said a "zero FIR" has been filed against the accused based on the woman's complaint and the Mahendergarh police are investigating the matter. A zero FIR is filed in a police station under whose jurisdiction a crime did not happen, but from where the case can be transferred to the relevant police station.
