Kasaragod: In the gang-rape of a 19-year-old girl here, the number of accused in police custody touched 10. A Crime Branch team under DySP A Satheesh Kumar arrested three suspects on Sunday and Monday.
Enmakaje native Beefathima (42) who acted as an agent, Uduma native Fayas Moideen Kunji (29) and Mangad native N Muneer (29) have been arrested recently.
The accused abused the girl by taking advantage of the financial backwardness of her family. The complaint noted that the girl was intoxicated with psychotropic drugs and raped by taking her to many locations, including Cherkkala, Kasaragod, Mangaluru, and Thrissur.
The girl revealed the shocking sexual assaults during counselling at a hospital. She was admitted to a hospital after complaining of physical and mental uneasiness experienced following the assaults. Soon the women’s police wing in Kasaragod registered a complaint based on the statements of the girl and handed over it to the district Crime Branch.
Police informed that at least 18 accused are reportedly involved in the case and the remaining suspects will be nabbed soon.
