Gujarat: 13-Year-Old Girl Alleges Gang Rape By Insta Friends, 3 Held.

SURAT: In a shocking incident, a 13-year-old girl has revealed of being raped first by her Instagram friend — Abhay Borad — whom she had befriended a year ago on the social media platform when she was just 12-years-old. He later invited another friend to rape her in the incident that happened 10 months ago.

In a rape complaint filed with the Chowk Bazar police, the minor stated that Borad, who she had befriended first in September 2022, took the survivor to a building in a deserted place in Magdalla road near Surat Airport where he raped her. Thereafter, Borad called his friend Sanjay Ahir, who too took turns to assault her in the same premises.
Later, the duo asked the girl’s permission to allow another friend of theirs, Hiren Solanki alias Heric alias Harish Solanki, to have sex with her, which she had denied. Solanki allegedly threatened her to surrender or that he will publish her photos in newspapers. According to the police, all the accused are around 20 years of age. Cops have filed a case for gang rape, abduction under relevant sections of IPC and POCSO and arrested all the three accused.

Meanwhile, the accused are claiming that they don’t know each other. “We are, therefore, investigating their claims with technical details,” sources said.

According to case details, the minor victim had come in contact with Kamrej resident Abay Borad when she was 12-years-old. He took her to a house in deserted place in Magdalla road near the airport and in a room on the first floor forced himself on her. He then called Sanjay Ahir who too raped her. When they wanted to ring yet another friend, Hiren Solanki, the girl opposed and Solanki could not rape her then.
Twenty days after the gang rape incident, Borad once again took the survivor to the same place and raped her yet again. Chowk Bazar police sources said, “As the survivor came home late 10 days ago, her parents inquired about her whereabouts and she revealed that she had gone to Rajhans cinema. The parents got stricter and checked her phone too when she divulged about her relationships. She told her parents about the rape on her by three persons who had come in her contact through Instagram. We have arrested all the three accused.”

The girl studies in Class 8 while her parents work in a factory. Of the three accused, two are pursuing their graduation of whom one also coaches for kabaddi. The third accused does labour work.TOI
