Three men accused of raping a 19-year-old student after drugging her in Haryana's Mahendergarh district are on the run, police said, two days after the teen was allegedly abducted from a bus-stop in Kanina town on her way back from a coaching centre.
The mother of the young woman, a school topper who was felicitated by the government, said more than three youths were involved in her daughter's gang-rape.
She said her daughter was in a state of shock after the incident and the accused were still "roaming freely".
"The government talks about Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao, but is this the price one has to pay for getting our daughters educated? The accused are roaming freely but police has failed to nab them," she told reporters in her village, which falls in neighbouring Rewari district.
