Three arrested, two minors detained in Surajpur, Chhattisgarh, for raping a girl

A police officer said three men were arrested and two minors were detained on Sunday for allegedly raping a 16-year-old tribal girl in Chhattisgarh’s Surajpur district.

The case’s investigating officer, Deputy Police Superintendent CB Kujur, stated that the girl, who is eight months pregnant, reported the incident on Saturday. He went on to say that the accused, Mohammad Mashuk Raza Mansoori, 20, Abu Bakar, 28, and Ashraf Ali, 27, were arrested the next day.

“The other two minor boys were also detained in the case and police are taking the statements of the accused,” Kujur said.

Police said the girl met Mansoori and one of the minors in December last year. “In February, the accused [Mansoori] insisted on meeting the girl…[he] took [her] to an abandoned fuel station where Bakar, Ali, and two minor boys …raped the girl,” said Kujur. The accused later threatened her with a sexual assault video and allegedly sexually exploited her a couple of times.

“When the girl got pregnant, she told her family about the abuse. The family reported the matter to the police,” said Kujur.
