Amid a national outcry over the gang rape of a paramedic in a moving bus in New Delhi, a young girl was allegedly gangraped by a ten-member gang, including a college student, at Vridhachalam,about 200 km from here, in Cuddalore District of Tamil Nadu.

The incident took place late in the night of December 24 on the banks of River Manimuktha and came to light last evening after the police booked cases against ten people following a complaint from the victim.

The girl, a native of Gurumangalam Village in Vridhachalam, was chatting with one Bakiyaraj, her relative, on the river bank, when the gang accosted them.

After beating up Bakiyaraj and snatching away some valuables and money from him, they tied him up before sexually assaulting the 20-year-old girl.
