One of the accused, Santosh Rai, have been arrested whereas a search for the second accused is still on. The medical examination revealed that she had been subjected to sexual assault. There was blood on my daughter's undergarments, walls, and floor.
The police quoted the parents alleging that their daughter had been "acting strangely" over the last 10 days, which added to their suspicions.
'I could not see my daughter because the guards did not let me enter. "I don't know whether the accused did it on earlier occasions", said a weeping father. She also staged a protest outside Singh's residence and demaned that the rape accused be hanged within six months.
