GWALIOR: In a shocking incident, a 17-year-old girl was sexually abused by a youth who had befriended her through Facebook and his friends in a car. The incident took place in Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh on November 21.

Additional Police Superintendent Niranjan Sharma said that the girl and her family have lodged a complaint. Police have invoked provisions of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act since the victim is a Dalit, an official said, adding that nobody has been arrested so far.

The girl met the youth through Facebook last year. On November 21, the youth and his friends took the girl to a forest region in a car. They then sexually abused her and threatened to kill her.

According to sources, the girl told the police that one of the accused was a close relative of a prominent political leader. The accused have also been booked under sections of the POCSO Act.
