Local authorities in Mumbai are currently investigating the case of a 15-year-old girl who was reportedly sexually assaulted by her boyfriend and friends.

According to reports, the case started when the boyfriend of a 15-year-old girl raped the latter and then captured everything on video.

"It all started when the lover of the girl raped her in January and made a video of the incident. He started blackmailing her on the basis of that video,” Dattatray Karale, commissioner of police (East region) stated.

The filmed incident was used by the boyfriend against the girl for further sexual exploits. Worse, the boy shared it with his friends who in turn used it to blackmail the girl and rape her as well.

According to BBC, the girl was raped for about nine months. The incidents happened in different suburbs of Mumbai, including Dombivili, Badlapur, Murbad and Rabale.

It was only on Wednesday, Sept. 22, when the female victim finally reported the whole thing to the authorities. In all, she claims that she was sexually molested by at least 33 different attacks. She also added that she knew almost all of them.

According to reports, 24 individuals have been arrested in connection with the rape case of the 15-year-old girl. There were also two minors detained in connection with the case according to Karale.

The minors will be remanded in custody at a children's remand home.

The victim is now in stable condition and undergoing treatment at a government hospital.

Angry mobs who learned about the case reportedly surrounded the police station where the suspects are being detained. They are facing crimes that include rape, repeated rape, gang rape and rape of a minor.

India's rape laws were overhauled after an infamous 2012 gang rape in New Delhi that shocked the world.
