Chennai Horror: Accused Used Labour Pain Drugs To Sedate 11-Year-Old Before Raping Her

The case involves an 11-year-old girl raped for 7 months by over 20 men!

An 11-year-old girl in Chennai, who is hearing impaired, was allegedly raped by around 22 men in the last seven months in her apartment complex. So far, 17 men have been accused and arrested by the Chennai Police. A Mahila Court has since given the police five days to question the 17 accused.

According to The News Minute, the girl identified all the 17 suspects in an identification parade in Puzhal prison in the presence of two magistrates this week. She had told the police that one of the accused used a blue injection, powder and some cream on her body before raping her. Turns out, the accused used to work in the Government Kasturba Gandhi Hospital for Women and Children in Chepauk, wherein he learnt about the drugs used to relieve women from their labour pain.

The child lives in a gated community and was reportedly frequently assaulted. She told her story to her sister when she came down to Chennai from Delhi and complained of a stomach ache. Soon after she opened up, the family went on to lodge a complaint at an all-women police station in Ayanavaram. The girl’s parents took her to Kilpauk Medical College and Hospital for treatment where it was found out that several men raped her.

Ravi, a 66-year-old lift operator, would lead the child as soon as she alighted from her school van to the basement, public washrooms, the terrace and gym, where he and other men would rape her. It is believed that since most of the apartments were left vacant, it wasn’t that difficult for the men to sexually assault the 11-year-old girl.

Most of these men who had allegedly raped her are the security guards, plumbers, and maintenance staff all from around and in the complex.
