The few other men who were already in the area also took turns to rape her. The accused later dumped her at a bus stop.
A medical examination of the girl has been conducted, said senior police officer AS Chawla. "We are looking to arrest the three accused... they dropped her back (at the bus shelter) and called her parents to tell them about her location," the police officer said
The girl's parents have alleged that the police initially refused to file an FIR in the case. They claimed that they ran from one station to another to file a complaint.
According to a senior police official, a 'zero FIR' has been registered in case. 'zero FIR' can be filed in any police station irrespective of the place of the incident or jurisdiction. The case can then be transferred to the concerned police station.
