Rewari: Days after the gang-rape of a 19-year-old woman in Rewari’s Naya Gaon, it has come to light that her panic-stricken perpetrators had contacted a doctor, to help the girl when they saw that her health had worsened.
The victim is a second-year student in a college and had also topped the CBSE board examination two years ago for which she was felicitated by the President. She is also a promising young baseball player.
Three men, Pankaj, an Army jawan, Nishu and Manish, kidnapped the girl from a bus stop in Mahendergarh in their vehicle on the morning of September 12 while she was on her way for coaching classes to Rewari town, drugged and violently raped her for close to eight hours. The three who kidnapped the girl, belong to the same village as her and reportedly knew her and her family well. It is also suspected that the girl was raped by a dozen men even though only three have been named in the FIR.
A doctor was brought in from the neighbouring village named Lukhi, to examine the girl as her bad condition scared her violators. The doctor found that the girl had dangerously low blood pressure and reportedly told then men that she could die. The men panicked and decided to release the girl, taking her to the bus stop from where they had abducted her. One of the men named in the FIR called the girl’s father and informed him that he had “spotted” her lying in a semi-conscious state at the bus stop.
The doctor who attended the girl told local residents about her condition and word reached the girl’s neighbourhood and family. Police have said that the doctor was tracked down and given security since his statement could prove crucial to the investigation and arresting those who are absconding.
As of now, the girl’s condition is improving even though she is still in severe trauma. Doctors have restricted the girl’s number of visitors as too many visitors can cause her emotional stress, according to one of the girl’s neighbours.
