Pune: An eight-year-old girl was allegedly raped by six neighbourhood boys since August in Pune’s Kondhwa area. The accused boys include five minors and one 19-year-old. After the family lodged an FIR, the police arrested the teenager and took the other minors in custody. The victim’s parents are daily-wage labourers.
Police sub-inspector S.P.

As per the complaint, the five accused minor boys are aged between six and 12 years,” Mr Gore said.
The issue came to light when the girl developed rashes on her private parts and fell ill repeatedly.
