When the mother opened the door the soldiers had blind folded the father and brother, and then took her away to a nearby coconut plantation and raped her.

She was raped by two soldiers, according to her complaint.

While the soldiers were taking turns in raping her, she managed to escape from the grips of the third soldier, ran into her room and locked herself up, she further described the incident in her complaint.

The following morning the woman had gone to the Chavakachcheri hospital, where the doctor who examined her had confirmed she had been raped.
