Mangaluru, Apr 5: Social activist Lolaksha on Wednesday April 5 decried the slow pace of investigation into an alleged gang-rape that took place under Dharmasthala police limits, in which a minor girl was allegedly raped by five men and impregnated.

Addressing a press meet here, social activist Lolaksha said, "The incident of gang-rape under Dharmasthala police station came to light a few days back. The police department has not yet started proper investigation and immediate relief has not been given to the victim.

"As per the FIR, Sandeep of Adikalanja, Guruprasad, Vijay and Karunakar are the accused persons. But there is evidence of some influential people being involved in this heinous crime. The slow pace of investigation shows that the police department is under pressure from these prominent people.
