Karaikal: The Karaikal Police in Puducherry has arrested 10 people for the alleged gangrape of a 21-year-old girl on Christmas eve. The girl was allegedly abducted and gangraped not once but twice by two different groups on Christmas eve.

The girl had accompanied a female friend to Karaikal to meet the latter's boyfriend. Three of the arrested are the girl's friends who failed to inform the police about the crime. The police say the girl has not ruled out her friend's boyfriend's involvement in the crime.

Two policemen have also been suspended for lapses in handling the incident. Two accused are still absconding. The police are expected to arrest them soon.

The girl has been admitted to a hospital where the police will soon take her statement in front of a magistrate.
