The youth asked her to meet him and took her to a lodge at Pandeshwar along with four other friends and raped her on December 23.The group left her at Kumble bus stand. The next day, autorickshaw driver Ganesh (24) noticed the girl crying and wandering around the bus stand.

He promised to take her home, but instead called three other friends and took her to a distant place, where all of them raped her. They abandoned her at the Kumble bus stand. On Tuesday, when the girl was in an unconscious state at the bus stand, some passengers informed the police. Following a complaint by the girl, Kumble police arrested auto driver Ganesh.
