The survivor’s mother claims that she was brought to Bhopal by the four men on April 22 and was raped over a period of three days. 

The teen reached out to an NGO to narrate her ordeal. The NGO then approached the superintendent of police and registered a first information report on Tuesday.

“The incident of gangrape with a 13-year-old girl in Lalitpur and then rape by a police officer after taking a complaint shows how the real reforms of law and order are being suppressed in the noise of ‘bulldozer,’” Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra reportedy tweeted. “If police stations are not safe for women, where will they go with their complaints?”
