The neighbor then left the two following which the male friend also left home.
Later the accused approached the girl who was alone in the park, but this time with 3 friends who all were residents of the neighborhood.

The argument went on for some time after which the girl was dragged into a car by the guy and his three friends who arrived there.

A Dutch tourist visited a bar in Goa and was in her private tent on the evening of Thursday.
