Teenager alleges gang-rape in hotel

01 August 2015, 20:27

New Delhi - A 17-year-old girl was allegedly raped by six men at a hotel in India's western state of Gujarat, police said.

Five of the accused who committed the crime near the region's main city of Ahmedabad have been arrested, police officer Reema Munshi said.

The victim told the police on Friday that she was assaulted in the Maninagar area earlier this week.

According to her complaint, one of the men who was known to her had taken her to the hotel and assaulted her. He later called his friends who raped her.

"We made the arrests after checking the hotel register and the CCTV footage. One more suspect is absconding and we hope to arrest him soon," Munshi said.

India toughened punishment for sexual violence after the gang rape on a Delhi bus of a student in 2012, whose death prompted mass protests.
