Sketch of an accused in Manipal gangrape case released by cops

Intensifying the hunt for culprits who abducted and raped a medical student from Kerala at Manipal near here last week, the police have formed 11 teams with 200 personnel working on the case.

The Udupi police also released a sketch of one of the accused prepared on the basis of the description given by the 22-year old victim, who was abducted by three persons from Manipal University campus while she was returning to her room from the library and gangraped late night on Thursday. Sketches of the other two accused were expected to be released soon, Udupi SP Dr Boralinagaiah told reporters.

IGP (western range) Pratap Reddy said the police have lodged an FIR under sections 363 (kidnapping) and 376 D (sexual assault by gang) against unknown persons. Police are confident of nabbing the accused as they are working on leads secured on the suspects and the auto used for committing the crime, Reddy said. ‘We have questioned 15 to 16 people’, he added.
