Punjab rape attempt: An 18-year-old basketball player was thrown off a stadium's roof after she resisted a rape attempt. The woman suffered multiple fractures. According to cops, the incident took place in Punjab's Moga on Thursday.

The player was admitted to a private hospital in Ludhiana where she was undergoing treatment for injuries in both her legs and her jaw, they said.

The incident took place on August 12, and all three accused have been on the run since, police said. According to the complaint filed by the victim's father, his daughter had gone to the stadium in Moga for practice.

One of the accused, identified as Jatin Kanda, allegedly tried to rape her at the stadium. When she resisted and tried to escape, he allegedly pushed her off from a height of around 25 feet, which seriously injured her in multiple places.

A case under several sections, including 307 (attempt to murder) and 376 (rape), of the IPC has been registered against Jatin and his two accomplices. Moga Senior Superintendent of Police Gulneet Khurana on Thursday said raids are being made to arrest the accused.
