Hyderabad: A shocking instance of rape has come to light where a 13-year-old girl has been pushed into prostitution for more than 8 months, sent to different brothels in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, and in the time period, was raped by as many as 80 men.
The police on Tuesday arrested 10 more people in the case, as per news reports, taking the total arrested to 74.
The story continues to shock as it came to light that the minor was ‘adopted’ by a woman who had befriended her mother in June last year in a Covid-19 hospital, mentions a Times of India report. Swarna Kumari, the main accused, on the pretext of taking care of the girl, took her away after the girl’s mother passed away due to Covid. It was then that she forced her into prostitution.
In August 2021, after the girl’s father filed a complaint, the police swung into action and traced the girl. Reportedly, six accused are absconding in this case.
