Initially, she was hesitant but later they convinced her by telling that one of her female friend and another friend would also join them, police said. The bike belonged to Sachin. They took her to another friend Rohtash's house in Faridabad where Gaurav, Sunny, Sachin and Rohtash allegedly raped her, police said.
They threatened her against disclosing the incident to anyone. She was dropped in Delhi by Vinod who also raped her after stopping the car in an isolated place. The incident had left the girl traumatized and she didn't attend the classes for many days.
