New Delhi: It was a case of vigilante justice in Surat. Three alleged rapists were beaten up in a civil hospital in the city where they had been taken for medical examination.
Crowds attacked two of the three youths, repeatedly kicking and punching them.
The three men waylaid a 17-year-old girl in a car as she was on way to a tuition class, pulled her inside the vehicle and allegedly raped her before dumping her on the outskirts of the city on Friday.
According to police, the three men, in their 30s, waited for the girl to arrive at a bus stop near the Regional Transport Office (RTO) on Friday morning. As she walked from her home to attend a tuition class at Rander Nagar, near the RTO, the men allegedly grabbed the girl, pulled her into a waiting Maruti car and sped from the locality.
The girl was then allegedly repeatedly raped in the moving car and later dumped at the Piplod road locality.
The badly bruised girl called up her parents from a telephone booth and narrated the incident to them.
Her parents and relatives reached the spot and took her to a government dispensary for treatment after informing the police.
Medical examination confirmed that the girl was raped. She is the niece of a noted psychologist of Surat.
