ALWAR: Rajasthan saw three more cases of sexual assaults including one in Alwar where the angry family members of a minor victim lynched a suspect involved in the heinous crime. In Alwar, the 15-year-old girl was allegedly gangraped by three minors on May 14 who had targeted her at a village where she had reached to attend a relative’s marriage.

“While one of the accused managed to flee, the other two were caught by the victims’ family members and thrashed the next morning... Few hours later, one of them was found dead on the roadside,” SP Paris Anil Deshmukh said. Both sides have lodged counter FIRs — for rape and murder—against each other. The Superintendent of Police said both the accused were detained on Friday and will be sent to juvenile home.
