The mother of an 11-year-old girl with hearing impairment has lodged a complaint with the All Women Police Station that her daughter was raped by a lift operator and two of his accomplices at an apartment.

The victim belongs to a north Indian family settled in the city. The complainant alleged that her daughter was sexually assaulted by around 15 men multiple times, between January 15 and July 5.

According to the complaint, lift operator Ravi took her to isolated places in the apartment, such as the basement, the public washroom, terrace and the gym, and abused her.

Girl threatened

Ravi brought two men along with him and they administered an injection to make her unconscious.

They also threatened her with a knife and told her that they would kill her if she did not obey them.

Ravi and the other men, the police said, raped the girl and also took photos of her in the nude.

According to the complainant, other staff working in the apartment such as security men, the plumber and the carpenter also raped the girl. They threatened her with knives, preventing her from complaining about what was happening to her.

The complaint also said that the family noticed a red mark on her neck, but she did not tell them about the sexual violence till July 13. The girl often complained of stomach ache, the mother said.

The All Women police have apprehended three persons, who were allegedly involved in the offence.
