Pune: Minor Accuses Father, Three Others of Gang Rape

Pune, June 4 (IANS) In a shocking case, a seven-year old girl has accused her father and three of his friends of repeatedly gang-raping her for a fortnight last month, police said here Saturday.

An officer of Chinchwad police station, on the outskirts of the city, said that the victim's mother lodged a complaint against her estranged husband and three others.

"We have arrested the four accused and sent them for a medical check-up. The victim too has been sent for a medical examination," the police officer told IANS.

According to the police complaint, the accused, identified as Narayan Pathak, married the woman in 2003 after a love affair. However, following marital discords, they were living separately for the past three years.

The woman, who works in a private company, said Pathak would come to her home on the pretext of dropping his daughter to a creche.

Last month, between May 13-31, Pathak and three of his associates allegedly gang-raped the girl on several occasions, prompting her mother to lodge the complaint.

The four are scheduled to be presented before a magistrate Saturday, the officer said.

Pathak works as a driver with the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC)'s public bus service. Police did not disclose the identity of the other three.
