The duo were held in December last year
Vadodara: The sessions court on Friday rejected bail application of the two men accused in Navlakhi gangrape case. Kisan Mathasuriya and Jaso Solanki had allegedly raped a minor girl at an isolated spot in the Navlakhi compound in November last year. They were nabbed by the cops about two weeks after they committed the crime.
The duo that sold balloons for a living had applied for bail that was opposed by the police stating that the case was at a sensitive stage. Kisan and Jaso, both residents of Tarsali, had accosted the minor girl when she was hanging out with her male friend in Navlakhi on the night of November 28. The accused duo threatened both of them and then slapped the boy.
They then dragged the girl into the bushes nearby and took turns to rape her. The girl’s friend managed to call his friends and even informed the police. But the accused fled from the spot before the cops could arrive. The Ahmedabad crime branch had arrested them after conducting a detailed investigation along with the city police.
