After months of torture and alleged sexual exploitation at an apartment building, an 11-year-old Chennai girl finally got relief from her nightmare. The minor was allegedly sedated with spiked drinks and raped by several men over months.

The police have arrested 17 people in connection to the case, who include the building's security guard, elevator operator and water supplier. They blackmailed the minor before assaulting, the police said after arresting the accused.

The latest development came after the minor's mother on Sunday filed a complaint to the police. According to a senior officer, the class seven student narrated the chain of events to her elder sister, who brought it to the notice of their parents.
