A resident of Quetta Town Society of Karachi, the girl was first lured and raped by her ‘friend player’ ‘H’ in a local hotel and then by two other suspects in a villa on Sarwar Road. The police registered a gang rape case against the three suspects while nominating them in the first information report.
