A minor from Alwar district of Rajasthan was allegedly gang-raped by eight persons who also extorted Rs 50,000 by blackmailing her. The accused are in the age group of their early and late 20s.

According to police, the accused obtained private pictures of the 16-years-old girl, who hails from Kishangarh Bas police station area of the district and blackmailed her by saying the pictures will be made public if she doesn't pay Rs 50,000.

She was later gang-raped by eight men, including the prime accused in the case. Following the incident, a complaint was registered by the brother of the minor girl on Wednesday.

On December 31, 2021, the main accused identified as Sahil called his sister at a nearby place and told her that he has got some private pictures of the minor girl and if she doesn't come, they will make it public. When the class 8 student reached the spot, eight men forcefully stripped her, sexually abused her and made videos of the act.

The accused allegedly started extorting money from the victim and also raped her multiple times by threatening her. Between April and June this year, the accused extorted Rs 50,000 from the minor.

But when the girl failed to pay more money, the accused allegedly circulated the video on local social media groups.

"An FIR has been registered under section 376D of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act. Prima facie, the allegations appear to be true," said Atul Agra, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Kishangarh Bas circle.

He added that teams have been formed to nab the absconding accused. More details would be revealed once the accused are held, he said.

Further investigation is underway.
