Ranchi: Three accused kidnapped a minor girl in Jharkhand’s Ranchi on Sunday (January 16) morning and raped her in a moving car. The horrific incident has sent shock waves in the city.
Three girls of a village went out Sunday (January 16) morning for their usual morning walk. While they were moving on the road, three males arrived in a car and tried to kidnap the girls.
Two girls escaped unharmed but the third girl couldn’t.

The victim got the time and escaped from their clutches. The case is of Mahuwatoli of Chanho police station area of Ranchi.
Ranchi Rural SP Naushad Alam said the minor has been raped and the initial investigation suggests that someone known to the victim’s family is also involved.

He called the victim to a secluded spot where his six friends were already present. They gangraped the victim. The matter came to light when the victim reached home and narrated the incident to her parents.
