In a shocking incident, a minor girl was raped for years by two persons in Kerala. The two allegedly drugged and blackmailed the girl. According to the complaint, the girl was blackmailed by a gang which had forced her to use drugs and raped her from 2019. She was a minor then.
"The girl had given her statement that she was blackmailed, given drugs and sexually abused. We have arrested two of the accused. A third person will be arrested soon," police said.
The police have arrested Naufal (45) and Abhilash (26), natives of Challissery.
A case under various provisions of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act was registered after the girl's mother petitioned the chief minister and the state police chief.
A special team has been constituted to probe the case.
