Pregnant 19-year-old gang-raped in Rajasthan, boyfriend ends life
JAIPUR: A pregnant Dalit girl was gang-raped in Banswara district, following which her eight-week fetus died and her boyfriend committed suicide. The crime came to light when four of the five rape accused, arrested a day earlier, were produced in a court on Monday.
According to police, the gruesome crime happened when the girl was going from Banswara town to her village with her boyfriend on a bike around 10pm on July 13. Three of the accused — Sunil, Vikas and Jitendra — stopped the couple and attacked the boyfriend with swords and iron rods. The trio snatched his mobile phone and forced him to leave the spot. The boyfriend returned to his village and committed suicide by hanging from a tree within a few hours of the incident as he could not save her from the criminals.
Banswara police district circle officer Parbati Lal said the three men, all drunk, then took the girl to an isolated spot close to the city and gang-raped her. The trio then took her to Sunil’s village, where they called two more of their friends — Naresh and Vijay — who also raped her.
After committing the crime, the five abandoned the girl on the road around 4am on July 14, Lal said, adding that the matter remained under wraps as the girl did not report it to anyone.
Police got wind of the crime, once they arrested Jitendra while probing the suicide of the survivor’s boyfriend. Jitendra had given the handset, which was snatched away from the boyfriend, to his wife and when she switched it on, police traced the location. They found that on July 13 the survivor had made calls to the number.
在调查女孩男友的自杀的过程中，警方逮捕了Jitendra ，Jitendra 把从女孩男友手中抢来的手机给了妻子。
Police followed it up and reached the survivor to investigate the suicide. She was undergoing medical treatment during this time and had not informed anyone about the gang-rape. She finally revealed it to police, who registered a case of gang-rape, abduction, abetment to suicide under SC/ST Act on July 17. On July 26, the cops arrested Jitendra, whom the survivor identified as one of the rapists.
Police arrested the remaining four on Sunday, though the survivor is yet to go for the identification parade. Her statement in front of the district magistrate will also be recorded later this week.

Always carry a firearm for self defense and better still avoid traveling with ladies at night on motorcycle. Really a tragic and sad indeed
