A 17-year-old college girl was raped by four men for 10 days at a lodge in Whitefield after kidnapping her. The police have released the photos of the four accused, who have been arrested now.

The incident which occurred in October has come to light now. A missing case was registered by the victim's parents with the KR Pur Police on October 30.

The accused have been identified as Raghavendra (27) of Udupi, Sagar (22) of Davangere, Manju Raj (32) of Mysuru and Manoranjan Pandit (52) of West Bengal

The girl leaves home for a party on October 24 with a friend. The friend is said to have known one of the accused Raghavendra, who was running a tea shop outside the Hotel inn in Whitefield. As the girl was waiting at the railway station with a friend, Raghavendra approaches them and says that he has come to drop her at the party venue.

Believing him, as he is a friend of her friend, she goes with him. But Raghavendra asks her to wait in the room number 6 and then rapes her instead. Then his friend Sagar comes inside the room and rapes her. The girl was also raped by another friend the duo and Manju Raj. The hotel owner too raped her as the price to keep his mouth shut about what happened in the room.

However, police were tipped off and had rescued the girl from the Inn and arrested the four accused of raping the teen for 10 days.

This is shocking news, and strict action should be taken against all the four. The issue should be taken seriously like Nirbhaya case, and the accused should not be let go.
