Days after two minor girls from North East were allegedly gang-raped in Goa, another such incident has come to light from the state. Reportedly, a girl from the North East was taken to Goa on the pretext of a job, confined and raped for three days. The incident took place in the Quepem area of the state. Reportedly, this is the third rape case reported to the state police.
The accused have been identified as Shambhunath Singh and Sudhakar Naik. Singh is a resident of Delhi while Naik hails from South Goa. Reportedly, the accused brought the girl to Goa on July 26, on the pretext of a job.
After bringing her to Goa, the accused allegedly confined the girl and raped her for three days, India Today reported. She, however, managed to escape from the flat where she was being kept by the accused on Thursday.
From there, the survivor called the police control room and a complaint was registered under section 376 (rape) and 343 (wrongful confinement) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
After the gang-rape case of two minor girls came to light from the state, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant passed a few remarks that sparked a row. In the state Assembly, Sawant said that parents must introspect about why their daughters were ‘out late’ at night.
