According to police sources, the victim had become friends with one of the accused Soumyajit Das alias Raj after they interacted through a social networking site. On Thursday Raj called the victim for a meeting at Rabindra Sarobar and told her that he would introduce her with two of his friends Anik and Sanket. The girl was accompanied with one of her friends also a minor girl.
