In her First Information Report (FIR), the girl alleged that she along with another girl signaled a private car to stop in the College Gate area on Saturday night and urged its inmate, Rony, to give them a lift when the vehicle stopped. Rony’s driver was driving the car at that time.

The incident captured by one of the onlookers with his mobile phone went viral on social networking site Facebook.
