Thrissur: A Plus Two student was gang-raped by her father’s friends at Punnayurkulam here. Police arrested one of the three accused following the incident. It is reported that the two others are on the run.
The shocking incident happened two months ago. Though the girl informed this incident to her mother, the family abstained from lodging a complaint at the police station or seeking legal aid. The news of the sexual assault came out only when the school authorities provided counselling for the students.
Police have found that the accused used to visit the girl's house in connection with the drug dealings with her father. A team headed by Guruvayur ASP is investigating the case.
Police informed that the accused used to trouble the girl whenever they visited the house and the girl’s family had attempted to conceal the crime.
