Karkala, Feb 26, 2015 : Karkala Rural Police who are investigating into the case of alleged rape of a Dalit girl by a Muslim youth who posed himself as a Hindu and a bachelor, have arrested three more persons said to be the associates of the prime accused.
It was earlier alleged that the poor Dalit girl was raped by Mohammad Asif from Borgalgudde after befriending her, at a shed near his home.
It is learnt Asif was an already married man and a father of three children.
He was trapped by some Hindu activists on coming to know about the incident and handed over to police, but not before thrashing him.
The other three arrested are Ravi, Vijaya and Yogish from Parappady. They are facing charges of abetting Asif in the act. They have been produced before the court and have been remanded to judicial custody for 15 days.
