An 18-year-old man and eight minors allegedly raped a 10-year-old girl in a school in Haryana, NDTV reported on Friday. The accused also made a video of the incident and circulated it online. Some of them are reportedly 10 to 12 years old, according to The Times of India.
The incident took place in a village in Rewari district on May 24, but a case was filed only on June 9, based on the girl’s father’s complaint. He approached the police after learning about the video.
The school where the crime happened was closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. “The child was playing in the school compound close to her home,” Rewari’s Deputy Superintendent of Police Hansraj told PTI. “The accused took her inside and committed the crime.”
