A group of drunk Army men gang raped a 14-year-old girl who was onboard the Howrah-Amritsar Express after forcing her to intake alcohol.
The girl who is a resident of Kolkata boarded the punjab-bound train at Howrah on sunday but somehow entered the compartment reserved for Army personnel by mistake.
Out of the group of jawans, one got the minor to consume alcohol and then two others raped her when she went to the bathroom.
Social Workers foun the girl unconscious on the train when it stopped in Jharkhand’s Madhupur station.
“We have arrested one Mandreesh Tripathi who had offered liquor to the minor,” said Madhupur GRP’s officer in-charge, Arjun Tiwari. Sources said Tripathi has confessed he forced the minor to drink.
The girl has since then been in shock and needed counselling.
