They took the girls to a secluded area where they raped them, the Hinjawadi Police said.

Panicked girls did not inform about the incident to their families.

But, when one of them complained of severe pain then her parents took her to a hospital. The doctors found out that the girl was in trauma.

The doctors then informed the cops. The police then approached the girl’s family in the hospital on Tuesday. But the girl was unable to speak, the report said.

“When we approached the other girl, she narrated the entire incident,” a police officer said.

On her statement, the police have lodged an FIR against the two accused. The man has been identified as a 22-year-old Ganesh Nikam. The police have arrested Nikam and detained the teenage accused.

The rape victim who was undergoing treatment at the government hospital slipped into a coma and succumbed to injuries Wednesday night.

“We are waiting for the post mortem report to ascertain the exact cause of the death. Accordingly, relevant sections will be added in the case,” he said.

Nikam will be produced in a court Thursday and the minor boy will be produced before the Juvenile Justice Board, he said.
