COIMBATORE: The second rape victim in the Pollachi rape case in her testimony before the mahila court here on Monday said that she was raped thrice by the accused on the fateful night on June 11.

The nine-year-old girl was abducted from the TELC-run home in June by a history-sheeter and reportedly raped repeatedly on the terrace of a building close to the facility.

The victim, in her 25-minute-long testimony before the sessions judge of Coimbatore Mahila Court M P Subramaniam, hesitantly narrated the horrific details of the events.

Her version of the gruesome incident was cross-checked by the defence counsel of accused Veeran alias Veerasamy (23).

Unlike the other victim, who had stated that she was raped on two separate nights - June 9 and 11 - the nine-year-old girl said that she was abducted and raped on June 11.

The other victim, an 11-year-old girl, had deposed before the court a few days ago and was cross-questioned by the defence counsel.

The headmaster of the TELC Elementary School and manager of the hostel also testified on Monday.

The judge adjourned proceedings till September 10, when the watchmen of the church and one of the prime witnesses are expected to testify.

The accused Veerasamy was produced before the court and was taken back to the Coimbatore Central Prison after the hearing.
