“Rahul succumbed to the injuries around 4 am,” said the Reasi SSP.
Surjit Kumar further added that our of four accused, i.e., Pawan Singh, Vikram singh and Kakaram, all residents of Bhagta in Katra, had been arrested while one accused Sukhdev Singh, alias Sonu, had run off.
“A police team has been sent to arrest him,” said the SSP.
Six more persons have been detained for questioning – Gori Singh, Krishan Singh and his two sons, Omkar Singh and Pritam Singh.
The girl in question was also questioned but the police said that she was in a state of shock and was not able to tell anything.
The locals said that Rahul and Abhishek knew that the girl was all by herself in her house and so they had gone to meet her.
“Once the accused came to know about the presence of the two boys in the girl’s house, they dragged both of them outside and starting beating them up till both of them fell unconscious,” said a source. “When the accused realised that the matter has gone out of control, they left the spot,” the source added.
