Mumbai: 9 booked for raping minor girl repeatedly in Vile Parle

The cops have arrested eight accused while one is still on the run. Of the men accused, one is a local political leader.

In a horrifying incident, a minor girl in Vile Parle was raped repeatedly by nine men for over one year.

The incident came to light last week after the girl complained to her mother of pain in her private parts. It was later established that the 15-year-old had been raped several times in the past one year by nine men.

The cops have arrested eight accused while one is still on the run. Of the men accused, one is a local political leader.

The cops added that one of the rapists, who lived in the girl's neighbourhood, had threatened her to not report the matter to anyone. When he showed a video of him raping the girl to his friends, they took advantage of the situation and joined him in raping the minor. The accused followed the minor everywhere, including to her school and also forced unnatural sex on her.

Medical examination of the girl was done after an FIR was filed by the police.

The cops have been seeking help from two counsellors to register the sequence of events as narrated by the girl.

The eight accused arrested will be produced in the court on Wednesday.
