In a gruesome case of sexual assault, a 12-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her three minor cousins over a period of five months, according to an ANI report. The incident happened in the Navsari district of Gujarat in India. The alleged crime came to light after the minor was admitted to a hospital following a stomach ache and a medical examination revealed that she was four months pregnant. 

Navsari Deputy Superintendent of Police BS Mori told the outlet, "The minor was raped by one of her cousins when she was alone at home. Later he told this to two other cousins who also allegedly raped her after threatening her not to disclose the matter to her mother. All the accused are below 18 years."

He added, "The girl had a stomach ache following which she was taken to hospital. On examination, the doctors told the mother that the girl was four months pregnant. The girl then informed the incident to her mother." The DSP also revealed that all the accused in this crime are juveniles and have been booked under the POSCO Act. All of them are absconding at the moment and authorities are on the move to make arrests soon, read a police statement, according to The Sun.

Similarly, another crime against a minor was reported in the same district where a 13-year-old was raped by her cousin's friend. The incident took place on October 3 and, according to the police, the accused in this case also took compromising photos of the girl and then went ahead to circulate the same on social media.

"On October 3, the accused took the girl on his motorbike to a secluded place. The accused then raped her and took photos on his mobile phone, which he shared later on social media. The girl's relative got to know about the photos through a relative and asked the girl who revealed the ordeal," DSP Mori told the outlet.
