The girl is a resident of Old Faridabad, Haryana. In her complaint lodged with Faridabad Sector-16 police station, the girl said that on the morning of 11 August, 2018, she was going by auto to her beauty parlour for work. Her neighbour was also sitting in the auto, and near Badarpur border he gave her shikanji (lemonade) laced with drugs. After she passed out, he took her to a room and raped her.
