AGRA - Two instances of gang-rape were reported from Mathura and Firozabad over the weekend. A 14-year-old girl was raped by six men in Farah, 10 km from Mathura. In Firozabad, another minor was raped by three people. Police have lodged FIRs in both cases.

The 14-year-old girl was kidnapped by the accused when she went to relive herself in the fields on Saturday. Reports said she was in the village to take part in a religious event. She took a break from the religious event around 9 pm, and went missing afterwards. SSP Mathura Nitin Tiwari said the girl, in her statement, told police that the accused men took her to the fields and raped her.

She said the men threatened her, and told her not to reveal that she had been raped. The girl managed to reach home and revealed her ordeal to her parents, who approached the police. An FIR was registered under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act against six men, all of whom are absconding. The girl was sent for medical examination and counselling.

In the case of gang-rape reported from Firozabad, a 17-year old student of intermediate college was raped by three men in Abbas Nagar under Ramgarh police station. In her statement to police, the girl said she had been abducted and raped while out to draw water from a hand-pump on Saturday night. Police nabbed two of the accused, while the third managed to escape.

An FIR under Sections 364 (kidnapping) and 376 (rape) of IPC has been registered. Meanwhile, a Dalit woman in Agra complained that local goons roughed her up in Fatehbad after she resisted their attempts to assault her. Police, however, claimed she had some dispute with the accused men.
