The victim filed a case with Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station over the incident on Sunday afternoon, said its officer-in-charge Ganesh Gopal Biswas.

In her First Information Report (FIR), the girl alleged that she along with another girl signaled a private car to stop in the College Gate area on Saturday night and urged its inmate, Rony, to give them a lift when the vehicle stopped. Rony’s driver was driving the car at that time.
A few minutes later, one of the girls got down from the car near Shyamoli Shishu Mela. Later, Rony swooped on the victim and raped her.
Sensing the incident, pedestrians surrounded the car after it stuck at a crossing and took Rony and his driver out of the vehicle and gave them a mass beating.
However, the driver managed to flee the scene at one stage while Rony along with his private car was handed over to police.
The incident captured by one of the onlookers with his mobile phone went viral on social networking site Facebook.
