At the Dordoi market in Bishkek, the girl was accused of trying to steal headphones. The seller took her to a 40-year-old local security guard.
“He [the security guard] scared me that I would pay 100,000 KG soms (about $1,200 USD) for trying to steal headphones or I would be imprisoned for 10 years. I said that I would ask my sister, but we could only find 5-10 thousand soms. He replied that this was not enough. Then he got back into the car next to me and twisted my arms. I cried and asked not to do this, he raped me,” the media has quoted the victim of violence.
