A teenage girl in Rajasthan was reportedly seen running down a street naked, terrified out of her mind, as she tried to escape three men who had kidnapped, beaten and raped her in a Rajasthan town on Monday evening, reported NDTV.
The girl, her cousin and her friend from Rajasthan's Bhilwara village were on their way to a temple when three drunk men approached them. While her cousin and friend managed to run away, the girl was allegedly dragged to an isolated spot and raped.
The victim's cousin who managed to escape rushed to a nearby market and screamed for help when a local shopkeeper took notice. As per reports, the shopkeeper accompanied her to the spot and saw the men thrashing the girl.
"They fled after seeing me. But the girl was so terrified that she ran without clothes for over half a kilometre. Initially, she refused to trust me and take my help. But after a few minutes, she trusted me. I gave my clothes to her," the shopkeeper said, according to reports.
A case has been filed under sexual crimes against children and atrocity against Scheduled Castes.
