An 18-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped by five men including her boy friend in Kollam after a "dispute over repaying the money" he borrowed from her.

According to the complaint, the incident took place on Friday. The girl said that her lover had borrowed some money from her. They had a fight when she asked him to return the she arranged after pledging her gold.
Following this, he asked the girl to come to Kollam and collect the amount. However, on reaching Kollam, her lover did not come to receive her. She stayed there for two days.
