Police are investigating a case where a 15-year-old girl was gang-raped by three men earlier this month in Habaswein, Wajir County.

Habaswein OCPD Caleb Wesa said the girl was first gang-raped raped by two men on February 18 before they handed her over to another attacker the next day.

The perpetrators fled leaving the victim in critical condition.

The victim is a Form One student at Ogle girls secondary school in Habaswein.

The victim was set to be airlifted to Nairobi for further treatment Friday.

Mr Wesa said that they were on course to arrest one of the suspects while the other two are still being pursued.

He added that the case was being handled by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation.

An attempt by elders to initiate an alternative dispute resolution system (maslaha) has drawn criticism among the residents who have called on the authorities to ensure the rapists get harsh punishment.
