A 17-year-old girl, studying in class 12, was allegedly drugged and sexually-assaulted by five youths near her village in Kurukshetra district of Haryana, reported NDTV on February 25, 2021. One of the accused, is the cousin of the survivor’s friend, whose house she last visited.

Three of the accused were arrested by police. Of them, two youths are 18-years-old and the third person, a juvenile, has been sent to an observation home. According to District Superintendent of Police Himanshu Garg the FIR was registered based on a complaint filed by the survivor's family after the minor failed to return home.

Sub-Inspector Praveen Kaur said the survivor had gone to her friend’s house after school on February 22. Her father said the girl visited a coaching centre for an English-speaking course from 1:30 PM and returned by 4 PM. However, on that day, the centre said the girl had not attended the class.

Instead, her friend’s cousin took the girl, suffering a dizzy spell, to a place near Umri Chowk where the other youths, including a youth working at a hotel and a juvenile, were already present. The girl said she was also drugged at the time of the crime.

She was finally rescued by her parents who spotted the girl on a motorcycle travelling from the Ladwa town side, placed between two boys. Her parents were heading towards the police station at Barara chowk at 7 PM.

"They recognised her from the school dress. While the girl was seated in the middle, the boy sitting behind her had been pointing a country-made pistol at her head," the complaint said.

The girl's family members intercepted the motorcycle and managed to rescue the girl after overpowering one of the accused. Yet again, the girl was drugged during the altercation, said police.
