Gujarat: 3-year-old gangraped by four porn-addicted minors, held

Surat: The police have arrested four porn-addict minors, aged between 10 and 14 years, for raping a 3-year-old girl in Mata Phalia village of Hazira in Gujarat’s Surat.

The incident took place on on January 10 evening. Police said the minors watched a porn video before committing the crime. The child was playing outside her home when the minors lured her on the pretext of giving her a chocolate. They took her to a secluded spot nearly 500 metres away and raped her one by one in the bushes.

The girl had disappeared from her home at 3 pm on January 10 and returned at 6 pm. As she was bleeding, she was admitted at Civil Hospital where she is undergoing treatment.

All the four accused are residents of the same village and they used to watch porn videos on their smartphones. Two of them are brothers, aged 10 and 13, and the other two are aged 11 and 14, respectively.

One of the minors used to carry his uncle’s Smartphone

Hazira police inspector RR Ahir said the four accused studied in a government school and had become addict to watching porn videos at a tender age. The 14-year-old child used to carry his maternal uncle’s smartphone and they used to voice search for porn clips as they did not know typing. The FSL team has seized the mobile.

How cops cracked the case

The cops cracked the case after one of the minors, who had gone to drop off the victim to her house, told them that they could ask him anything even though they had not asked him any questions yet. The Crime Branch took the minor in custody and during sustained interrogation he admitted that he had committed the crime along with three other minors.

All the four accused have been sent to juvenile home after medical examination.
