As the girl was crying inconsolably, her mother asked her to give the mobile to somebody else, after which she spoke to the girl's friend.

"When I went to the casualty room I saw my daughter crying there and seeing me made her cry more," the mother says.

"When I asked her what happened (the survivor) said that she has been forcefully raped by five persons," the statement adds.

When the mother asked about the identity of the accused, the girl said, "Mummy I don't know their names I know only their description."
