BANGALORE: A 16-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped by four men after they forcefully fed her spiked soft drink in a village in Bangalore Rural district on Sunday night when she was on her way back home. Police have detained four suspects, based on the survivor’s statement. Medical test conducted on the Class X student, the only child of a daily wage labourer from Kannamangala, 30 km from the city, confirmed rape. The girl had gone for an orchestra performance, organized as part of Kannada Rajyotsava celebrations, to an adjacent village and was walking back home when she was waylaid by four men. According to the survivor, she was forced by the accused to take soft drink, suspected to be laced with sedatives, before she was raped. The girl told police she knew two of the rapists. About half an hour later, a villager found the girl lying unconscious and half-naked in the field. She was rushed to a nearby clinic where doctors confirmed rape. “The girl has been discharged from hospital and sent home,” said V Ramesh, SP of Bangalore rural district.
