Belagavi, Aug 27 | As Karnataka still continues to be in shock over the Mysuru gang rape, another incident of gang rape of a minor came to light on Friday.
The father of the victim has lodged a complaint in this connection with Ghataprabha police station in Belagavi district. According to police the incident took place 20 days ago and the parents had not approached the police fearing social stigma.
The 15-year-old girl was raped by four persons when she had gone to her farmland alone. She belonged to a poor family and her parents feared that if they complained it would harm the future of the girl, the police said.
