According to the case details, Balia and his accomplices abducted both the sisters and their father from the victims’ house and then took turns to rape the girls in the moving jeep with their father also inside. “In moving car, Kumat and others first raped 15-year-old girl and then her 13-year-old sister in a moving vehicle in forest area for an hour,” the victims’ father stated in the police complaint.
